"Colorado Fisherman with Dog" by Mike Howard
2'x3' painting of a Colorado Fisherman. Painter Mike Howard has consistent themes, including hunting and fishing, food, art, and popular culture. Howard grew up in Phenix City, Alabama, before moving to New York in the early 1970s. He has had a modest career as a respected, if under-appreciated, Expressionist, best known during the heyday of the East Village scene in the 1980s. Howard’s work has always focused on masculinity and desire from a populist point of view, and while he has painted scenes of hunting and fishing with great verve, he is not a sportsman or outdoor enthusiast per se. His work relies on bank calendars, L.L.Bean catalogues, and advertisements for their inspiration and authenticity, as befits a latter-day Pop artist. Howard is a “faux” realist, borrowing from Edouard Manet and Thomas Eakins in order to paint still-lifes of fast food, bars, and beer.

Perfect Circle Wine Tasting and Package from Robert Sinskey Vineyards, Napa CA
This package is the real deal including not one but two magnums of wine, 2 cookbooks and a tour and tasting all from Robert Sinskey Vineyards in Napa!

Magnum 1: Abraxas, Vin De Terroir, Scintilla Sonoma Vineyard, Los Carneros, 2012: Born of the idea that four classic grapes- Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Gewurztraminer – planted in Robert Sinskey Vineyards’ (RSV) CCOF certified organic Scintilla Sonoma Vineyard, respond distinctly to the unique weather patterns of each year and then blended in ratios determined by each variety’s unique response to the vintage, to make the wine complete and complex.

Magnum 2: Pinto Noir, Four Vineyards, Los Carneros, Napa Valley,2008: A lot by lot selection from RSV’s four organically farmed vineyards on the Napa side of the Carneros. The wine has an ethereal, elegant quality with a warm, inviting nature and a nice balance of fruit, spice, mineral and earth.

Vineyard Kitchen Cookbook: In her debut book, Maria shares the honey yet sophisticated recipes that have made her one of America’s most celebrated chefs and a culinary star. Though Maria lives in the Napa Valley, she was born and raised in the Northeast, and her recipes capture seasonal availability and flavors, no matter where you are cooking. Family Meals: This book reminds us that one of the best ways to spend time with family and friends is to gather in the kitchen. Maria shows you how effortless it is to have fun and get everyone’s mouths watering in anticipation of a simple, well-prepared, made-from-scratch meal.

Visit with tour: To taste an RSV wine at home or in a restaurant is a good thing; however, to experience a flight of RSV wines, in the place they were made, can be a very enlightening experience. Find out why RSV was named Sunset magazine's tasting room of the year and the Wine Spectator featured it as a must visit winery in Napa Valley. But don't take their word for it, come see it yourself. Great wine is about good food and good people. You will find all that and more at RSV.

Solomon "Geisha" Skis
A Ski Magazine reviewer states: "The Geisha is our pick for advanced intermediates looking to improve - No. 1 in Forgiveness, Quickness, and Balance of Skills. It's friendly and playful, with a feathery touch that's as comfortable drifting as it is carving. It gently guides you into a smooth arc, with plenty of energy in reserve when you're ready for it. Testers thought it best at only moderate speeds, but that could be due to a too-short test length (164 cm). Bamboo makes it lively, basalt damps vibration. A structural cap layup - Salomon drapes a layer of fiberglass over its core - makes it light and strong
