50% of 7 Footers are in the NBA

My friend Brad usually lies about everything.  But today he said something that sounded like a lie, but for once it turned out to be true!  50% of 7 foot men in the US between the ages of 20 - 40 are in the NBA...go figure!

Places to Eat and Stay in Napa

I work with a few folks who know the Napa Valley pretty well and here's their list(s) of high-end-she-she places to eat and stay in Napa. The recs and comments are from my co-workers...Sadly, I have not been to any of these hip-she-she places. Enjoy!

Terra – Lovely stone building on a side street in St Helena. Nice place to take your wife and good food
Cook - Casual, where all the locals go. Main Street St Helena.
Bouchon – Thomas Keller of French Laundry and Per Se fame. This is his "casual" place. 6534 Washington St, Yountville 707-944-8037
Ad Hoc - 6476 Washington St, Yountville 707-944-2487
Redd – Newer and very well reviewed. Currently the hip place to go. 6480 Washington St, Yountville 707-942-2222
Tra Vigne – Nice Italian. Good buzzy place. In St. Helena
The Restaurant at Meadwood – new chef, beautiful location
Market – Casual. In St. Helena.
Taylor’s Refresher – Super casual. Burgers, fish tacos with great wine and beer list. In St. Helena
Wine Spectator @ Greystone – the Culinary Institute of America – nice deck looking over the valley, great for lunch and dinner, very cool store if you like to cook.

Calistoga Ranch (an Auberge property) - Rustic, but totally charming. Fabulous restaurant open only to guests. Like Auberge de Soleil - expensive
Meadowood – if money is no object (
Auberge Du Soleil – ditto on the money comment
Solage - pretty simple and basic.
Milliken Creek Inn and Spa
Villagio - Yountville
