Today we headed out to Livermore for the 22nd Annual Livermore Wine Country Festival. Twas a great day for it– slightly overcast and definitely cooler temperatures than yesterday. Whew! And I sampled some lovely wines.

my first taste – a syrah from Thomas Coyne Winery

This syrah was DELICIOUS and the best one I had of the day. Most of the reds I had were nice with just one that I wouldn’t drink again if I remembered which one it was. LOL I also had a few pinots and those were tasty as well. :)

If there’s lumpia, I’m eating it. ;) I also sampled the husband’s pulled pork sandwich (yum!) and had a chicken kabob that made a mess on my shirt. Oh well, it was good!

As the morning turned to afternoon, the crowds swelled. Yowsa!

We met up with friends and walked around a bit more before ending our time in Livermore at Harry’s. I had the prime rib and it was good.

When we were walking back to the car, I just had to take a picture of this:

JANE MONHEIT!!! I have loved her music for quite awhile (nearly a decade?) and who’d have thought she’d come out to LIVERMORE? Well, I didn’t. I do want to see her. We’ll see if I can, I suppose…
