Summer Weekend at Solage Calistoga

 

As we all know, San Francisco summers can be a little cold, and very unreliable. On many mornings, I find myself checking the weather before I leave and very often, in July, you see people wearing the same warm jackets as in January. So, as Karl the Fog rolls into town, I prefer to drive out of the city for a a weekend getaway, to enjoy some sunshine, wear a dress and remember that summer is in full swing!

 

Recently, a bunch of my girlfriends and I organized a weekend trip to Solage Calistoga, a place known for their amazing pools, Michelin rated restaurant, clear night skies, and a very relaxing atmosphere. And did I mention their beautiful spa with healing geo-thermal pools and mineral-rich mud therapy. All of the photos from our weekend experience are below. 

 This Kirin Ichiban beer with frozen foam on top, will keep you beer perfectly cool on a hot summer day. You won’t find this kind of frozen beer in too many places.
