After the ceremony and reception, the Shuttle Bus will return you back here, safe and sound. Of course, you'll be ready for some nuttiness- and that's why this one and the same Shuttle Bus will be making runs between Hotel Stops and Maverick's Saloon. That's right... I said SALOON. The wheels on the bus go round and round - just like your eyesight when you are drinking and driving. We will have none of that!"

"Of "Sideways" fame. We confess... we've never actually been there, but people tell us it's good."


Los Olivos Cafe - Restaurants - 2879 Grand Ave, Los Olivos, CA, United States

Los Olivos Cafe

2879 Grand Ave
Los Olivos, CA 93441, US

"Los Olivos is our favorite little township in the Santa Ynez Valley. This place is a great little wine merchant as well as a cafe. They participated in the movie "Sideways," which made this region so famous. That's not why we're recommending it though... we're recommending it because it's damn good."


Los Olivos Grocery - Restaurants - 2621 W Highway 154, Santa Ynez, CA, United States

Los Olivos Grocery

2621 W Highway 154
Santa Ynez, CA, United States

"This is a gourmet little grocery store, with a delicious little cafe. Order your food at the counter in the back of the store, and sit out front on the screened porch. OR pick up some yummies for a romantic little pic-nic at one of the wineries. Food and wine... yay."


Bridlewood Winery - Wineries - 3555 Roblar Ave, Santa Ynez, CA, United States

Bridlewood Winery

3555 Roblar Ave
Santa Ynez, CA, United States

"This is one of Anonymous & Anonymous's favorite wineries to visit, and they were club members here for a couple of years. After you have a wine tasting, wander down to the field and pond below to see some of their beautiful horses and ponies, as well as a couple of lovely swans. A tasting fee runs $5 per person (could have changed!), and Anonymous and Anonymous usually split a tasting, but mostly because Anonymous is a serious lightweight. A great place to bring a picnic!"


Vineyards -Winetasting trail - Wineries - Zaca Station Rd, Los Olivos, CA, 93441, US

Firestone Vineyards

5000 Zaca Station Rd
Los Olivos, CA, United States

"This is a big one. Yes, it is the same family which bore Andrew Firestone, of ABC's "The Bachelor," but give them a break. Not only do they make cheesy reality TV stars, they also make some good wine. So what. The thing about this place is - they give a tour. It's a cool way to see how wine is made. Tastings run $10 a person, tour and tasting runs $15."


Melville Winery - Wineries - 5185 E Hwy 246, Lompoc, CA, 93436, US

Melville Winery

5185 E Hwy 246
Lompoc, CA 93436, US

"Melville has some really delicious wine. As with any wine, any vintage, any varietal it can be hit or miss - Anonymous & Anonymous have had more *hits* with Melville than most. This one is a little out of the way, but if you feel like a bit of a drive and some yummy vino, it's a must-taste."


Shoestring Winery - Wineries - 800 East Hwy. 246, Solvang, CA, 93463, USA

Shoestring Winery

800 E Hwy 246
Solvang, CA 93463, US

"A good little tasting room to visit. A very nice family runs this vineyard. They drove out from the East Coast in 1997 with little more than hope and a dream... hence the name of the now popular vineyard. They charge a small fee for a tasting (a few bucks), and it is well worth it."


Sunstone Winery - Wineries - 125 N Refugio Rd, Santa Ynez, CA, 93460

Sunstone Vineyards & Winery

125 N Refugio Rd
Santa Ynez, CA, United States

"While preferring to eat organic foods, Anonymous's always a little slow to recommend organic wines. The reason being - she hasn't had many good ones. Sunstone, however, changed her mind... and if anyone knows Anonymous, you know that's not an easy thing to do. Stop by this lovely vineyard for a taste of some yummy ORGANIC wines. Who knew? Again, remember, all vineyards and tasting rooms charge a nominal fee to taste their wines. Something in the neighborhood of $5-$10."

"Okay - so many of you know how crazy Anonymous & Anonymous are with the whole biking thing. Not only did they complete a 109 mile ride through the desert this past November, they are also biking for a week in Burgundy, France as a part of their honeymoon. Who BIKES on their honeymoon? Anonymous & Anonymous, that's who. So if you'd like to see what all the rage is about and do a little biking through wine country, this is the place for a rental. We recommend calling ahead: (805) 688-0091"

Maverick Saloon - Attraction - 3687 Sagunto Street, Santa Ynez, CA, United States

Maverick's Saloon!

Sagunto St
Santa Ynez, CA 93460, US

"Bring your cowboy hat and a taste for some BBQ! This country bar is the real-deal. Don't forget that amidst all the snobbiness of wine tasting and spas and golf, this area is filled with FARMLAND and FARMERS... who know how to party. Come eat some of the tasty BBQ, or take a country line dancing lesson, or cry in your beer as one of the live acts does a cover of your favorite Willie Nelson tune. Any way you slice it, you're bound for a down-home good time. This will likely be the stop for an after-party on Saturday night, after the wedding! Be prepared to cab-it back to the hotel! Located on the corner of Sagunto and Medowvale, in Santa Ynez."

"A fun afternoon attraction for kids and adults alike. Go see some ostriches and emus, and even FEED them. Just don't let 'em nip at you as they try to get to the food! One bit Anonymous by accident. Seriously. It was all good though. She didn't cry. But I am surprised she didn't kick his ass."

The Town of Solvang

Solvang, CA
Solvang, CA, US

"The little town of Solvang is a great place to spend the afternoon just wandering around. It's modeled after a little dutch village, and there is enough kitsch around to make your Great Aunt Fanny blush. Perfect for kids, or those who don't care to go tasting the local alcoholic grape juice. There are plenty of little restaurants and cafes. Don't miss the famous local "aebleskivers," Mmmmm... fattening and yummy breakfast!!"
