A Brief Detour for Microbrews

Mendocino, Mendocino,
Where life's such a groove
You blow your mind in the morning.
— "Mendocino," The Sir Douglas Quintet

So we're closing this thing out here in Mendocino, where life's such a groove I can't afford to live here. I love Mendocino, sort of a misplaced New England town in northern California, situated among rocky coastlines, redwood trees and the largest marijuana growing area in the country. Makes for an interesting local culture. The wine's pretty good, too..I like the local white and the local pinot.

I'm taking a wine break tonight to drive up to Ft. Bragg and the North Coast Microbrewery, which is a world-class brewery, for the cheese soup. Strangely enough, Bishop, my greenwing macaw, is from Ft. Bragg. Sorry I couldn't bring her along to visit the parents!
