Cheers! My Birthday Celebration with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours

After losing my grandmother a few weeks before my birthday, I really needed to celebrate life. I know she would want me to do that. This year, I decided to ring in a new year of life in wine country. My soror traveled up from So Cal to visit. This would be her first time in Napa. I didn’t want to drive so instead, we bought bus tickets for the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Let me tell you something, going on this bus tour was one of the BEST decisions I made. The Napa Valley Wine Country Tours bus isn’t just any bus. It’s a limo bus that looks like a VIP club lounge on wheels. We paid $119 for an 8-hour trip, visit to 4 wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties, continental breakfast and lunch. It was worth every penny. The tastings aren't covered in the bus fare, but they ran about $10-$25. Wineries won't charge you for tastings if you buy a bottle. I recommend this for tourists and any Bay Area locals who have folks visiting from out of town and want a short excursion to Nap…

A Hot Weekend


Contrary to what Tony! Toni! Tone! sang back in the day it does rain in Southern California. Luckily rain makes perfect movie weather so make sure to check out the Pan African Film Festival. This year film screenings will be shown at the Culver Plaza Theatres in Culver City. You can still see the art show at the Baldwin Hills Mall. Support these Black artists. The great thing about indi films is you see images of Black people that aren't shown in mainstream Hollywood. The festival runs through February 16th. It's the largest Black film festival in the country.

There will be plenty of partying going on this Grammy weekend. I hear Busta Rhymes is throwing an afterparty Sunday at Ivar in Hollywood. The Grammys come on this Sunday, 8pm on CBS. I'm rooting for Jennifer Hudson, Jazmine Sullivan, Pink, Keyshia Cole, Mary J. Blige and Eric Benet.

Have a FLY weekend!
