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…

My Interview With Fantastic Negrito is on Ebony.com

I told you in a recent post that I would have some special news regarding Black roots artist Fantastic Negrito! Well it's all in the title of this post. It's rare when a person gets to sit down with an artist they admire and ask them anything they want. This is why I love being a journalist.

I enjoyed our interview and I learned a lot about Black artists from the back in the day who laid the foundation for rock, punk and other sounds in pop culture. It's a great interview. This is my second piece for Ebony. Read on and buy Fantastic Negrito's new album The Last Days of Oakland. Also, he's currently touring with Chris Cornell, so check him out in a city near you. He is AMAZING live.
