Over 200 People at K&L Tasting on Saturday!
Over 200 people attended the Real Wine Assault tasting at K&L in San Francisco on Saturday, including a delegation from the Walnut Creek Veterinarian's Guild.
Happily, all the vignerons were able to get on their morning flight from Seattle to attend the event. Unfortunately, Jean-Paul Brun was late for his departure, but Laurence Brun, his sister, was able to hold down his table until he arrived at 2:30 pm.
That night, we split up to eat at Slanted Door, Citizen Cake and Chez Panisse. Luckily, I always travel with my GPS and we were able to find the directions to the restaurants. My group, which went to Chez Panisse, found a cab driver who didn't know how to get to Berkeley and I had to mount and program the GPS to go from the plush Carlton Hotel in San Francisco's Tendernob to Chez Panisse. On our return, the Berkeley driver did not know how to find San Francisco's Tendernob and I once again had to mount and program the GPS. The Berkeley driver was Cantonese and didn't speak English well, but happily my Tomtom GPS has both a female and male Cantonese voice.
Thank goodness for modern technology.
