Am just realizing that I may not have enough time to obsessively research the way I like, so I need to call on the board for a little help today.
Am headed to Ft. Ross late-ish tonight to do some abalone diving in the morning - am just staying overnight. Planning to take a meandering route back to the East Bay with lots of stops for eating and drinking.
On the way there - it will be late (anticipate a 9 pm departure from Oakland) - any good spots on the way, or are we better off grabbing a burger/tacos/burrito out here before we go?
On the way back - looking mostly for simple food, a good burger, soup, pastries, tacos, etc. Wild Flour Bakery is the only thing I have figured out so far. Would like to avoid downtown Sonoma.
Wine preferences - I like lean, acidic pinots, and zins that taste like pinot. The BF loves jammy zins, and pinots that taste like zin. That should cover most of the offerings in the area, so am open to all suggestions.
