J. Bookwalter

J. Bookwalter Winery is one of my favorite haunts, especially summer evenings on the patio. They have music on the weekends and superb food. The wines are named after literary conventions – Protagonist, Subplot, Foreshadow… You get the idea. They also contribute to charities promoting literacy. And they have a Google Business View virtual tour. Click below to stroll around inside. So what’s not to like?

Walla Walla Village Winery

Walla Walla Village Winery is a great little place! Proprietor Barb Clark was very gracious and full of interesting stories about how the winery developed it’s psychedelia theme. She has actually met Ted Nugent! She knows a cousin of Jerry Garcia who lives in Walla Walla. Talk to Judith at Wildberries Cafe about that one.

They have an Open Mic night every Thursday night from 7-10 pm and I will be there tonight (4/9/09) doing some more video. I might even sit in and do a tune or two. Come on down and buy me a glass of wine. Buy yourself one, too.

CrossRoads Steakhouse – Red wine and Blue Mountains

Had a nice afternoon chatting with Kim about her restaurant, CrossRoads Steakhouse by the golf course in Walla Walla, WA. This is a great place with live music on the weekends, mostly Blues and CW, with an occasional Zydeco  band thrown in.

We tasted a little Red Barn Red from Yellow Hawk Cellar, also in Walla Walla.
