Local Literary Fun!

I just got an email from Zoetrope: All Story about this upcoming event and thought perhaps it'd be of interest:

Join us at the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville!
It may be the month of Fog-ust in San Francisco, but just up the road in Geyserville you'll find all the sunshine and warmth you could ask for! On Saturday, August 24th we'll be basking in that Summer glow while celebrating our SUMMER 2013 ISSUE guest-designed by Michael Stipe, the founder and frontman of the iconic rock band R.E.M.

Join us for food and wine pairings, a "Choose-Your-Own-Adventure" tour of the property, and a friendly game of bocce—with prizes!

In an effort to make visiting the winery as easy and enjoyable as possible for our Bay Area friends we are trying something new. For the first time ever, we are thrilled to offer a special San Francisco Shuttle package (see details below)!
