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…

Watch Babs Tonight on CBS















I told you Cocoa Fly covers everything from hip hop to the one, the only, the divine super divalicious......Barbara Streisand. Normally I don't blog on Saturdays but I want to remind people that CBS is airing one of Bab's concerts from 2007. Streisand: Live In Concert airs tonight at 8pm. Sorry to folks on the East Coast for posting this late. But you can see clips from the concert here . Maybe CBS will put the concert On Demand. I will be watching this before hitting the party scene tonight.

I love Barbara Streisand. She sings with a level of emotion that I don't see in a lot of artists. She's one of the few singers, outside of gospel, who makes me cry when I hear them sing. My mom always tells me she loves Babs for her music and because she wouldn't get a nose job when Hollywood execs pressured her to go under the knife. I respect a woman comfortable in her own skin. And can you believe Babs celebrated her 67th birthday yesterday? You lookin' good girl.

I must get back to my sunny Saturday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
