Zinfest returns to Lodi Lake this weekend

Lodi is known for its small-town feel, its inviting nature and, of course, its wines. And, most of all, for its zinfandels.

The event, which sees thousands of attendees every year, will feature 40 area wineries offering tastings of their varietal, food vendors, live music, merchandise and other attractions.

Cooking demonstrations will also be available at the lakeside celebration.

Zinfest will run from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

On Sunday, local wineries will continue the fun with open houses. Cycling and kayaking activities will also be available.

Tickets are $55 and up and can be purchased online at zinfest.com... Read More

Memorial Day weekend musical adventure in Napa

Sometimes the stars align and everything just goes your way. I also write for the ModestoView and know that they cover BOTTLEROCK every year so I asked the Editor Chris Murphy, if he had a chance could he check out a Vespa for me up in Napa. He thought I was going and asked if I wanted to ride up with them. I explained I was not. He asked if I wanted to go? There was an extra media pass and room and board already taking care of.  The Gallo Center for the Arts was dark for Memorial Day weekend, I had no other plans so, Yes Please. Left early on Friday morning and the drive was pretty easy going until we got to Napa. We pull up to the street on the backside of the Fairgrounds and tell the CHP that we are staying on 4th. Half a block from the entrance. Load in and I am informed that I will be staying in the Hunter S. Thompson room.
