Open house, Livermore's own Thomas Coyne Winery

Just a few weeks back I went to go visit Thomas Coyne Winery because they were having their open house.  As always the property instantly relaxes you when walking up to the entrance.  Something about that 100 year old building with the fantastic view over looking the vineyards.  Oh yes, to top it all off, […]

Demitri’s Taverna & Swirl

Before the New Year kicked into gear and after the extravaganzas of Christmas, Carl and I decided that we needed a night out on the town.  What town you ask?  Why of course, our hometown, Livermore.  With so many restaurants to choose from, we narrowed it down to one that we hadn’t tried before and that […]

Thomas Coyne to the Rescue!
