Who would have guessed in early March that this was the last visit to the Wine Country before we started Sheltering in Place, or SIP’ing , as I prefer to call it (no pun intended, of course)! Spring had already started, but it pains me to have missed the gorgeous mustards and cherry blossoms this year!
“Beach Blanket Babylon, San Francisco’s hilarious pop culture musical revue, is the perfect night out with friends. Celebrating over 16,000 performances and seen by over six million people from around the world, this internationally acclaimed production continues to delight audiences at Club Fugazi in San Francisco’s North Beach district with its spectacular costumes and outrageously gigantic hats!
Beach Blanket Babylon follows Snow White as she takes a fast-paced journey around the world in search of her “Prince Charming.” Along the way she encounters a star-studded, ever-changing line-up of hilarious pop culture characters, including Donald and Melania Trump, Kim Jong-un, Colin Kaepernick, Vladimir Putin, Lady Gaga, Wonder Woman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Sarah Huckabee, Ivanka Trump, Serena Williams, Barack and Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Taylor Swift, Oprah, Prince Harry and Meghan, and the Golden State Warriors.”
If you’re going to San Francisco, do not miss this absolute gem in the middle of North Beach. I must have seen it 15 times over the past 21 years. Here is the link to their website: https://www.beachblanketbabylon.com/
Outside Bordeaux – The Hourtin Lake and the Atlantic Ocean
Only 1 hour from Bordeaux, or a straight shot to the West from Chateau Mouton Rothschild, you will find Hourtin with its lake and the beautiful Atlantic Coast. Not as populated or affluent as Cap Ferret or Arcachon, it is a beautifully peaceful destination for getting out of the City of Bordeaux.
