At Quan Hy in Orange County's Little Saigon. Felt like a Vietnamese food virgin. Bánh bèo for the very first time.
My view while jogging Huntington Beach today. #orangecounty #california #christmas
Having an unapologetically touristy day in LA! We're on @Starlinetours Red Line bus. Then @Cirque "Iris" matinee.
Good morning, @BacaraResortSB, Santa Barbara! #goleta #luxury #travel #fretterobes
It's Christmas at The @MadonnaInn. Just a little bit. #sanluisobispo
Here it is: The rocky caveman shower stall in the @MadonnaInn's Highway Room! Me shower. Shower good.
Last night I stayed in The Highway Room at @MadonnaInn! Features pics of road construction work & a rocky cave shower!
Cafe Roma, San Luis Obispo: Had to try Brown Butter & Sage gelato. It works! A side of ricotta ravioli gelato, please?
Wine & bacalao-stuffed piquillo peppers at Meze wine bar, San Luis Obispo's Railroad District. Cute pre-dinner spot.
Here's my view from the "Navajo" room at Wild Coyote Winery B&B yesterday. A taste of Santa Fe in Paso Robles.
Cloak & Dagger wine! Visit their site & email them. Then the game begins. cloakanddaggerwines.com
Lunch at @Farmstand46, Paso Robles. This town likes fun t-shirts. My server's shirt says "Zin Bitch."
A view with a side of lunch at Nepenthe, Big Sur. Tourist stop but completely charming, for burgers, cheese, drinks.
Big Sur: @ladygaga isn't the only one on the edge of glory right now. I'm driving south on Route 1.
Gorgeous day in Carmel today. Sunshine & Christmas tunes at The Barnyard shopping center next to Carmel Mission Inn.
Cocoa Vino has fortified wine & chocolate: @TasteMonterey told me this is "the biggest new wine trend in N. America."
200+ Monterey wines avail @TasteMonterey! Was told cooler climate = fruit forward wine. Bought Muira & Ventana.

Frommer's CA authors agree Monterey's Fish. Wharf is touristy but good noshing. I'm at @OldFishGrotto for clam chowder.
Damn good rum bar in SF: @smugglerscovesf. I asked for a drink for a Manhattan lover. Bartender served the Chadburn.
