DSC 0425-5318-600-450-100-cFriday, May 11, more than forty DAFers descended on Paso Robles for a weekend of food and wine. After a lively cocktale hour at the hotel, the group broke up into more manageable parties to invade area restaurants. Police were on high alert, having been warned of the groups arrival, but no incidents were reported.

Saturday, we found our way to the Steinbeck Winery (some by more circuitus routes than others). After a little history lesson on the family and the vinyard, there was a tasting followed by formation flyovers by the intrepid Nanchang and Glasair team. When the smoke dissapated, we moved down to a shaded grove in the vinyards for a great catered lunch and more wine. Much merriment ensured. Saturday evening, the cocktale hour was much more subdued. In a shocking display, Joe Cogan was observed drinking a diet Coke! (The photo has been sold to TMZ, and should be spiking on the internet by now.) The group again divided up into smaller parties and headed to dinner, switching restaurants to avoid being eighty-sixed.

Sunday, after a leisurely morning, the group returned to Torrance. Thanks to Wayne Grau for his efforts arranging the trip.
