When you tire of one sort of beauty, there’s another.

Dear Feastlings,
Ah, Spring Break. Sure, everyone with kids out of school is taking this moment to do what they have barely, if at all, done for the past two years: Get. Out. Of. Town.

I understand the itch. For myself, I’ve taken three extra days in the past two years, in which I ate an alarming amount of beautiful food and walked it off climbing steep San Francisco hills, and all it did was whet my appetite for more. Still, as delightful as it is to get away, it’s really the most beautiful time of year here- sunny but not hot, with plants filling in with greenery, by desert standards, anyhow, and the occasional blossom.

My hope, though, is that by the afternoon, you’ve gotten your fill and you’re ready to scoot out of the sun to enjoy another kind of beauty or two, in your glass or on your plate. In an effort to help you make that shift, I remind you that you can still participate in today’s wine tasting, if you’re not reading this from the other end of a voyage from Tucson. There’s room for both in-person and remote tasting, and here’s a bit about the wines


and a link to the tasting itself.

But there’s also a menu if need a snack to accompany your tastes,


and some notes about next week’s wine dinner. I mention it despite the fact that it’s full, only because it’s Tucson, where people change plans at the last minute, or make plans forgetting that they’ve made other plans to be in San Diego or some such place, so if you’re on the waiting list, there’s still a chance a spot will open up for you.

I also mention here that reservations are a good idea for St. Patrick’s day, when we’re awash in house-corned beef and cabbage, plus Guinness chocolate cake and oatmeal porridge bread. We’re also bringing some of the above to our friends at St. Luke’s Home, with your kind help.

More Saints than you can shake a stick at

Whenever we get to see you, we’ll be delighted and grateful, but calling ahead will undoubtedly grease the wheels. Thanks, everyone.
