Napa Art Walk, CA State Fair, Soccer, and Ice Cream
In two weeks I've been to the California State Fair three times, been to four soccer games, headed to Wine Country a few times, and, of course, enjoyed some fabulous food and wine along the way.
In Napa I've been enjoying some of the items from Crush Ultra Lounge that I haven't had before, including a fantastic burger and sliders. I've also headed up into the vineyards to see Veraison take place (when red wine grapes go from green to red), and took an opportunity to walk through Downtown Napa and check out the latest installment of the Napa Art Walk.
In Sacramento I took full advantage of having Sacramento Republic soccer tickets that included admission into the State Fair, with three trips to the fair, the wine pavilion and farm, county exhibits, and of course food on a stick (chicken kabobs were amazing, turkey leg too).
Other food outings included brunch at High Hand in Loomis, happy hour at Florez, lunch at Cabos, and I couldn't resist celebrating National Ice Cream Day at Sparkles in Granite Bay where the ice cream is made in a couple of minutes with liquid nitrogen and any flavor combination desired (I went with chocolate peanut butter and Reese's pieces.
