Welk Resorts Wine and Beer Tasting

Happy 4th of July weekend! Hope everyone enjoys it and gets to do something fun! Speaking of fun, Michael and I attended a Wine and Beer Tasting at the Welk Resorts up in Escondido last week. While we aren’t huge drinkers as you may know, that never stops us from enjoying a carefully planned menu and appreciating the pairings.

It has been two long years since we attended a bacon inspired festival. The last time we went to Bacon Fest at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the dessert inspired bacon samples far outweighed the savory ones. In moderation that’s fine, but I’d much rather have it flipped. Michael and I are not huge drinkers which meant we were here for the “bacon” part and not the “barrels.” Beware, lots of pictures in this Bacon and Barrels post.DSC_0090

It took place on the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend and turned out to be a wonderful day weatherwise.…

You may have seen our giveaway for Taste of Bankers Hill the other week. Congrats to all our winners and everyone who participated!

Events events events! There are a ton of things going on in San Diego this time of year. We got invited to attend The Wedge in Escondido which focuses on local eats, cheese, beer, and wine. There are going to be 25+ cheese and food vendors and 15+ beer and wine vendors for your eating and drinking pleasure. Since we’ve never been to this one before and don’t get a chance to head up to that area often, we figured this would be a good opportunity!

The street festival is located on Grand Ave.…
