Just noticed that it’s been a while since anyone has posted on the blog. I’m guessing it’s due to the recent buzz in the local real estate market that is making business pick up.
I’ve been putting in a lot of effort towards work so I decided to focus some energy on the “greater good”. I am a huge animal lover; especially dogs. However, due to working long hours and having a home that is currently unsuitable for pets. I decided to start volunteering at the Peninsula Humane Society. It’s truly been an amazing and rewarding experience.
Anyhow, I have only put in about 5 hours there and have already been caught on video tape. Here is a short video of a dog currently available to adopt, Shenzi. In the background you will see me bribing Shenzi with treats around the agility course.
Good Morning Everyone!
For those of you who know me well, you may know that I am a bit of a wine snob enthusiast. I’m often known for finding good deals on some of my favorite wines or being a go to guy when planning trips to Napa, Sonoma or Paso Robles.
Last year I went to my first “Passport to Dry Creek” event. While many vineyard-plentiful regions hold this type of event I’m going to tell you why this is my favorite one. Dry Creek Valley is located primarily in Healdsburg, CA — Sonoma County. This is an area known primarily for its amazing Zinfandels. However, many wineries in the Dry Creek Valley also produce award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir.
I vowed I would never publicize this event because of how hard it normally is to obtain a ticket. Normally you have to know someone, be a highly active wine club member of a participating winery (all participating wineries are members of Winegrowers of the Dry Creek Valley) or be one of the limited few who acquires tickets through a raffle system. However, tickets don’t be seem as hard to come by this year, maybe because of the economy, or maybe because of the awesome new first come, first sever system that the winegrowers office set-up this year? Tickets run $120 for the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) or $70 for Sunday-only. Saturday is considered the best day to attend (and most crowded) but they do not offer a Saturday only ticket.
Want tickets for the event? (being held April 24th & 25th) Visit www.wdcv.com.
A few months back I had the privilege of meeting Ash Sud, CEO of San Francisco’s newest eco-friendly moving supply company; ZippGo. After tweeting back a forth a few times I did a phone interview and had the privilege of hearing the vision behind this amazing new company.
The reason it took so long to post a finished article is because the real estate market has picked back up, so that means there are now more of you moving again. Next tine you’re ready to run to your local UPS store, U-Haul store, or self-storage retail store; think green and call ZippGo.
While watching some prime time TV last night, former San Francisco Willie Brown came on to announce that tickets are now available for San Francisco’s 2nd Annual Dream House Raffle! Raffle ticket proceeds benefit YBCA (The Yerba Buena Center for The Arts). Here is some general information; tickets $150 each – 1 out of a 100 chance of winning something. 1 in 40,000 (only 40,000 tickets sold) in winning the Noe Valley online casino Dream house. Other prizes include cash, cars, and vacations. The sooner you get your tickets the more chances you have to win due to three early bird raffles the first of which is this Friday, April 2nd 2010.
Now for the good stuff…
My name is Brendan Aiello and I will be your tour guide. This post will serve as the first of many posts about Lake Tahoe; arguably the #1 weekend vacation getaway to most Bay Area residents.
Why have I been chosen by the team to serve as a “tour guide” to the Lake Tahoe area? Simply because I was born and raised in the Bay Area and have been visiting the Lake Tahoe area since I was a baby.
My mom spent a lot of time here when she was youngster too. In the late 1950’s my grandfather decided that he wanted to spend more time in the place where he and my grandmother spent their honeymoon. So in 1962, he completed construction of the “Shamrock Inn” in South Lake Tahoe, CA. This was prior to the casino “strips” construction. The hotel/apartment complex was eventually purchased by Harrah’s to house the many construction workers that would be building the high-rises that are seen on the strip today.

In 1987, My grandfather completed construction of a single family house in South Lake Tahoe, CA designed to house the family whenever they decided to come up to Tahoe and I have been taking advantage of it ever since.
Whether it is skiing, snowboarding, biking, hiking, lounging on the beach, jet skiing, boating, golfing, gambling, dining or another Lake Tahoe attraction I have become very accustomed to the Lake Tahoe Vacation lifestyle.
Now that you know my Lake Tahoe history, stay tuned for reviews on many aspects of the Lake Tahoe. As I have a lot of information on this area, if you are curious on solely Lake Tahoe information. Click the drop-down “Lake Tahoe Tab” under the “Weekend Getaway” tab in header navigation.
