Exploring the Stunning Wine Country of Central California
Stark And Beautiful Photos Of Resilience From The Storm-Battered U.S. Virgin Islands
“I used to board a mule for grandma Niven,” John informed me during our kayak excursion.
For me, the comment epitomized the central California coast. The folksy familiarity. The small town connections between locals. The no-nonsense straightforwardness of rural life encapsulated in a task as prosaic—and yet, to a city-slicker like me, still charmingly exotic—as boarding a mule.
Finally Wine Pairings I Can Actually Understand
“The most heartbreaking thing for me,” said Savanna Goodman, a photographer and longtime resident of St. Thomas, “was that the colors were gone from the flowers, the trees, the water, along with my job, my apartment, and my entire routine.”
I'm Loving Jura 10
Miller is a som and wine consultant who sometimes works with the discount grocery chain Aldi to develop their shockingly affordable wines. Hoping to get a better understanding of how wine pairing really works, I picked out a few Aldi snacks and asked Miller to select wine pairings for them, and explain why.
Coming Home at the March of the Juggalos
I was introduced to Jura scotch whisky years ago by a very dear friend. We’ve lost touch these days, but I always think of her when a bottle of Jura comes out; it’s easily her favorite scotch, and probably her favorite spirit. Though I never thought much about it at the time, over the course of our friendship just by having it around a lot Jura became one of my favorites too. When I got my hands on a bottle of Jura 10 the transformation was complete—at least right now, this is hands down my favorite scotch whisky.
The Last Two Bags You’ll Ever Need
Packs of people of all kinds, from toddlers to the elderly, morbidly obese to skinny as a rail, most of them, but not all, white, roamed up and down the sidewalks wearing baggy clothes and Hot Topic–style accessories. There were a lot of oversized, shin-length shorts, garish haircuts and teeth that hadn’t seen a dentist at some pivotal juncture in the distant past. Some wore their faces painted in black and white like happy, evil clowns.
Most importantly for me, both of these bags possess that magical, hard-to-find quality that I’m always looking for above all in a piece of luggage—inspiration. The HURU makes me want to head for the hills and on to far flung thrills. Hook & Albert’s garment weekender makes me want to dress to the nines and hit the dance floor after a fancy cocktail party.
