Aaron and I went to Napa for the weekend. We spent a lovely day wine tasting and exploring some magnificent food shops. Here are a few pics of the weekend:

Taylor’s Automatic Refresher–an awesome restaurant—it’s been around for a long time and the wait is crazy! But the burgers are really good.

Yummy burgers—and some garlic parmesan fries that were also excellent. The chocolate shakes were very tasty as well.
