Well, Melodie won the trip through her food vendor at her restaurant. We have a choice of the following for a weekend of our choice with spending money and all food is provided by Sysco chef's: 1) Silerado Country Club I have been there once for a weekend and had a great time. The restaurant was very nice and the golf was great. Melodie can do the pool thing and I could invite Vince up for a round on Saturday. 2) Monterey Plaza Hotel I have never been to this property. The stay includes aquarium tickets. I'm ho-hum on aquariums because I spent ten years diving. My thinking is to possibly get a room during the Concourse (Fat chance?). 3) Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica This would be a good drive down the coast in the 308. The pictures look pretty sweet! 4) Fairmont SF I would take this to catch Beach Blanket Babaylon (SP?). It's the closest. 5) Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn Being so close to Siverado, I would probably pass on this location. I stayed at this property many times when I was a kid. At that time, 50% of the property was a rest home and the other 50% occupancy was for tourist at $12 per night!
