Russian River Recap

Had a great weekend in Guerneville for Labor Day weekend. Did a lot of online research before we went so thought I'd return the favor and provide some recommendations!

On the way up we stopped at Fiesta Market to stock up. Driving from SF, taking Highway 116 through Sebastopol helped bypass Santa Rosa traffic. And, it was a pretty drive. Fiesta Market was similar to a Mollie Stones, kind of like a Mom and Pop version of Whole Foods, we loved it. Great pricing and great selection of produce, meat, cheese, everything we needed.

Then we hit up Russian River Pub on Highway 116 just east of Guerneville, in Forestville. Had read on Chowhound that their wings kicked butt and they did not disappoint! We were saying they may have been the best wings we'd ever had.

The next day for lunch we hit up Stumptown Brewery in Guerneville. Great pulled pork sandwich, great burger, great fries, great beer, great outdoor deck. SLOW service. Think they forgot our order or something. But still a cool spot.

Other non-food recommendations - stopped at King's in Guerneville to pick up some tubes for a river float, the guys in there are unbelievably nice. Also, if you're looking for a good beach for laying out and swimming at the river, Sunset Beach is awesome, it's about 2 miles east of Korbel.

Can't wait until our next weekend there!!!!
