I love this story - I want to read more stories about our local wine-makers! Maybe a wine-maker of the month series? ;)

I drove past this place a couple weeks ago on a Friday night and it was hoppin'! It looked like a really cool fun gastropub, and now that I know what's on the menu, I'll go in next time. Thanks for the info.

This was a terrific read! I've been driving past that road for almost my whole life and I didn't know this was there. But now that I know, I'll be stopping by. It makes me feel good to know the honor system still exists.

This isn't an article about the Catholic Church in general, or priests in general - it's about the Santa Ines Mission, and the specific Irish priests who have preserved it. These men have dedicated themselves to helping make this a richer, better place to live. And I think it's an outstanding article. It makes me proud to live here, and it told me about a place I drive past often and never really knew much about. I didn't even know we had Irish priests! But how wonderful it is that they are still here serving our community.
You can't go around judging all priests by the misdeeds of other priests, or the Catholic establishment they serve. There are good priests who are out to serve God and their parishes - and it seems we have a few good ones in Santa Ynez.
Thanks to the author - this is a great piece and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It's too bad there are so many unpleasant people making tangental comments.

On the way down South, go to Snapper Jack's Taco Shack in Ventura or Camarillo. Those crispy steak tacos are better than anything I've found in LA.

I liked the way you wrote it up - it's a challenge to make a chain sound interesting and human. Not just a challenge for the writer, but for the chain as well.
