My 30th birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I'm planning on spending the day at the Russian River Food and Wine Fest with a couple of friends. I'm looking for a place to have dinner that night -- I had been planning on going to Cyrus, but I left it too late, and we're on the waiting list. Could anyone suggest a special occasion place in the Rio Monte/Guerneville/Healdsburg area as an alternative?
Also, if anyone can recommend a cheap but fairly nice place to stay in the area, that would also be much appreciated -- we'd like to save our money for the food, but I'd prefer to avoid staying in a Motel 6.
Thanks for any advice.
