ScruzCon Bound...

I'm bailing from work early today and heading over the hill to Santa Cruz (in my "bird of paradise" aloha shirt) to join the rest of the winos for VintaCon 2.

What's VintaCon, and why is this VintaCon 2?

Well, back in 2002 a bunch of us were thinking "wouldn't it be nice to run off to Sonoma or somewhere the weekend after ConJosé, relax, recover and taste a lot of wine?"

Alas, SoNapaNomaCon didn't happen. Everybody was so busy getting their departments ready for ConJosé that nobody had the time before to plan it, and nobody had the energy afterwards to attend it.

But Spring and Dave didn't give up. Last year they organized SloCon (the First VintaCon). A dozen or so of us meandered down to San Luis Obispo to the infamous Madonna Inn, cruised around Paso Robles tasting wine, and had a generally excellent time. We even ran over to San Simeon for a night-time tour of Hearst Castle.

On Sunday morning of SloCon, the site for VintaCon 2 was chosen, bringing us to ScruzCon. This time we're at the GuestHouse Pacific Inn in Santa Cruz, and tasting all over the Santa Cruz mountains.

Time to go before the traffic on 17 gets too bad...

alright!! so we are sorry we missed everyone at this years vintacon, but school and work schedules (me learning to be a SCUBA instructor mostly) didn't allow us much time to join in.

We're going to have a VintaCon party at our house, maybe in late Nov. or Early Dec. We'll send evites with plenty of notice so Hope to see you all there!

P.s. I joined a Star Wars Costume group so hopefully will see you all at cons more often!
