A couple of friends from San Diego, Marshall and Lois, came up to visit this past weekend. I had a great time showing them around Mendocino and the Anderson Valley because they are both very visual people. Lois is in graphic design and Marshall is a photographer. I saw things I would normally never notice when I looked at things through their eyes.
That has to be the BAAT!
What’s a BAAT you ask? It is bacon, avocado, arugula and grilled BGI Heritage Garden heirloom tomato over a thick slice of fresh sourdough bread. The combination of sweet and peppery Millionaire’s Bacon, with the flavor of a garden-fresh heirloom tomato can’t be beat. Of course, I may be a little partial since we grew those tomatoes from seed, so I guess you will just have to come and try for yourself.
Fall is a beautiful time of the year in the Anderson Valley. Trees changing colors and the vineyards turning a flaming red. The last of the grapes waiting to be picked are syrah.
After being out of service for more than 2 years, Brewery Gulch Inn’s 2-room Meadowview Suite is now back in service. And it’s first guest was a gentleman who was part of the ensemble cast of a long-running, ground-breaking television show.
The only rooms at the inn to overlook the meadow that hosts many of the deer, turkeys and other wildlife that visit Brewery Gulch, Meadowview is equipped with a mini-refrigerator, a microwave, a Keurig coffemaker, two televisions (one a large flat panel tuned to the DISH Network) and a stereo system. In the main room, a couch, two leather club chairs and a fireplace make for a comfortable area to watch television, or visit with family and friends. A queen feather bed rounds out this room.
In the bedroom, a splittable king featherbed, leather club chair and a large flat panel television make this a quiet and restful room for sleeping.
