Sensorio: Field of Lights Paso Robles

Sensorio: Field of Lights Paso Robles One of the things that drew me down to the central coast for the first time was the Sensorio Field of Lights in Paso Robles. This art installation is absolutely incredible! And while it was supposed to end in 2019, it’s been extended through June 2020, so you’ve still got time to see it!

The Riddler SF, a champagne bar in San Francisco

The Riddler SF

Champagne bars are fancy and fun. Every town needs one, and after visiting The Riddler in San Francisco, you can’t convince me otherwise.

From the “Reserved for Beyonce,” table plaque that was on our table, to the “Of course...
