      Hi Michael,

      Welcome to Napa Valley! The Napa Valley Film Festival is going on while you are here. It is an awesome festival – especially if you are a movie fan. The Valley will be full of moviemakers and film stars. I have participated almost every year and always have an amazing time!! If you are planning on a wonderful evening out to celebrate your anniversary, let them know when you make your reservation that you are vegan! And…enjoy!

Tell me what you think!
