So far so good Sunday.
I did feel a bit of pain waking up this morning after a full day of tasting at Hospice du Rhone that started at 9 AM and run until 6 PM. It was not all spitting. I did drink wine during Lunch and at BBQ Dinner.
I made sure not to miss my ride to San Francisco for my flight back home after 2 days of Rhone-ing.
Plans to meet a friend this afternoon did not seem to pan out so I headed straight to the aiport. I walked into Terminal 2 around 3 PM, was kindly guided through the boarding pass process by Madame Desai, checked my luggage in and breezed through security.
The new and tasty food options can be found once you pass checkpoint.
Under the Napa Farms Market umbrella you first noticed Equator Coffee & Tea counter offering baked goods besides your favorite cup of Java...Right behind Equator, you'll find Acme Bread and Cowgirl Creamery. Space then flows into Vino Volo.
Vino Volo offers a number of wines by the glass. Left page is the same at all 15 locations while Discovery selections are entrusted to the staff at each location. Price wise it goes from a $13 Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley to $30 Cab by Staglin. In bottle picks, I saw Kistler, Peter Michael, Silver Oak in the California big league alongside a Riesling from Michigan and wine from Penner Ash. French, Italian and Spanish are present. There is a $12 corkage fee if you buy a bottle and drink it there.
Two of the many offerings I noticed in marketplace where Duck Pond olive oil and vinegar as well as Poco Dolce chocolate which I had a chance to sample at Hospice du Rhone.
From 3 to 5 PM, Terminal 2 (T2) had the quiet of a library. There was a hum of activity in following hour as Virgin America flights from Dallas to Los Angeles, Seattle and Las Vegas were called then things quieted down.
The waiting areas around the gates get tidied up after each flights leave.
Nice to experience civilized travel.
The SFO free wifi does need an upgrade, compared to Gogo Inflight service I used on my way in.
Thanks to Virgin America for making my visit to Paso Robles for Hospice to Rhone possible.
Starting May 25th, they will add Chicago O'Hare to destinations served from both San Francisco and Los Angeles.
