Jill Knight is one of our favorite entertainers. She has a really wonderful soulful sound that really gets people rockin’. While usually Jill plays to much larger venues, it’s really a treat when we can get her for our wine bar guests.

This Saturday, August 3rd from 6-9pm join us in the Colibri Wine Bar for an evening with Jill Knight, delicious wines and tapas!

Summer Dining at Robin’s

Robins Front View
Recently a friend and I headed off for Robin’s “Sunday Music and Tapas.” I’ve always enjoyed dining at Robin’s: I love their fresh, local, creatively styled cuisine, that is tailored to meat eaters and vegetarians alike.

This visit was my first time eating outside in the gardens. I found myself amongst a riot of brilliant hued flowers and shrubs – absolutely magnificent: the food as well as the setting! Sipping wine, listening to live music, while enjoying delicious tapas with my friend was a perfect “10″ out of 10.

We booked this hotel because it was located close to Highway 1 and we needed a hotel close to Hearst castle which we were visiting the following day. The quality of the hotel was outstanding and the staff were very helpful on our arrival.

The hotel has a underground car park with enough spaces for all the guests.
We booked a King-size room and it was fantastic. There was plenty of room and all the furniture was modern, there was a leather sofa which was very comfortable.

I find it a little nerve wracking to book smaller, non chain hotels online. Not that I haven’t had bad experiences with chain hotels but you have a some level of comfort knowing that certain standards are LIKELY to be met. I couldn’t have made a better choice of hotels by booking El Colibri. We wished we had more time in Cambria just to stay here longer. The hotel was beautifully furnished and decorated in a modern, subdued yet completely original style.

Count Down to Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day RoseI’m not sure what it is, but I do LOVE Valentine’s Day. Admittedly, I’ve always had a ‘thing’ for hearts, and, in fact, have a beautiful red stone heart paperweight sitting aside me as I write this. Hearts show up in other places in my home, too. Like the funky little string of wooden hearts that hang by a piece of twine over a photo of my children, and the 4′ x 4′ modern painting of repeating hearts that hangs above my bed. So, yeah, I guess you could say I do have a thing for hearts.
