How about we… eat dinner at Nopa at midnight on a Monday, just because we can.
An awesome place I've visited:
I went to Istanbul a few years ago. The food & wine, the people, the scenery, and everything else about it was incredible. It's the one place I've visited that I need to go back to.
My perfect Sunday:
Tennis or a hike, a shower, and a homemade dinner with a bottle of Burgundy, and I mean the good stuff.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Probably Sideways because of the wine connection, but I enjoy it because the characters are more believable than in most movies.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Born in California, raised in Florida, and many stops in between. First I thought I'd be an engineer, and then I went to France and decided it'd be more interesting to make wine. Later I decided it's more fun to teach about it and to serve it. Since I only get to live once I'm glad I'm not an engineer working 8-5 right now.
My first concert / My dream concert:
I've been to too many to count - the first I actually wanted to go to was the Scorpions when I was in high school. I wish I could see Led Zeppelin, but that seems unlikely. Throw in Pulp and Faith No More as the openers, and that's a dream concert.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
20 decimal places of Pi (I gave up on the 21st)
What I would bring to show and tell:
My coffee roaster. Unfortunately it's living in Santa Rosa right now, and I'm living in San Francisco.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Travel a lot and buy some land to start my own winery.
