Que paso?

 No not El Paso Tx... Paso Robles CA (KPRB) If you saw the movie "Sideways" then maybe you know about this burgeoning wine region. I've flown over, by and past it for years but never actually stopped in the town for a visit. Just a one hour or so flight from either Socal or Norcal, we stayed at this very nice resort which is like a postcard from Italy. Had a great massage, tossed the football around the pool with my boys, and ate at some really great restaurants. Restaurant scene is probably not quite up to Napa yet, but more laid back and still some great food. Saw some live music, an Art show in the square. Also went to Sensorio the field of lights ( which is an outdoor art exhibit of thousands of led lights set up in a beautiful field with about a 3/4 mile walk down around the valley. They also have food trucks and live music, very cool !

I got a text from Aaron Degryse saying he was thinking of getting away for the weekend, where should he go? I told him I was down in Paso and less than two hours later he was having dinner in Allegretto restaurant and so we met up. The guys at ACIJet loved the Tbone and couldn't believe two showed up the same weekend, and waived all fees.

Anyways just a quick note to call out PRB as a great stop, although I probably gained 10 lbs from all the food, wine, cheese plates and a few Gelato stops with the boys.
