2) Looks like you are headed up to Napa. Why not spend more of the day up there and visit another winery or two? Leaving in the morning like you are, you can definitely fit in more than 1 tasting.

3) Quite a number of breakfasts at Dottie's! It's good, but not sure worth going back to so many times. Also keep in mind that it is a very very popular spot, and waits can easily stretch up to an hour or more.

4) Big Sur is beautiful, but keep in mind that it is a lot of driving to do in one day! If you can, I'd spend the night down there.

We're staying at the Westin Union Square. I have Turtle Tower on the list because I want Vietnamese and not the Cal-Viet fusion stuff you'll find at Slanted Door; and I want Pho.

We just wanted to do one winery while in Napa, which is why we don't have a second tour scheduled.

I was thinking about adding Brenda's Soulfood for breakfast on one of the days, but i'm not sure.
