Many of you may recall seeing the beautiful invitation we received from the team Lazy Bear to attend their exciting announcement about the new #wine program unveiling for the LAZY BEAR DEN in #sanfrancisco . We were taken into a magical place and swept away by the vision, hard work, and #hospitality of #Sommelier Matthew P Dulle and #Chef David Barzelay . As you can see from our pics in this gallery, no matter where we stood or looked, from downstairs looking up or upstairs looking down, Lazy Bear is a special place to be for #wine and #food. #SommChat

This week’s #travel started with a stop in #houston #tx for a night of wining and dining and it was as if we had been scheduled at @nasa for a prefect launch to our trip🚀🚀 We were told that we had to try Nancy's Hustle for dinner and again @ianmccaff @rootstockwinesatx did not let us down with his recommendation. The #winelist offered many options we could have chosen and when we find @envinatewine and #sangdecailloux, we knew we had someone with a really good palate procuring the #winelist. Thx to Sean Jensen @seaneatsalot (owner/enabler) for sharing these and several other gems BtG😀😀. And what a pleasant surprise to see our friend and #chef Mark Holmes @elsharkmom at the resto. The creations that are coming out of the kitchen are not to be missed. Scrolling through the pics you can see some of the dishes we enjoyed such as: #lamb dumplings with sunchoke chips, gem lettuce salad with crispy pancetta and anchovies, Nancy’s corn cakes (notice we couldn’t resist to take a bite before the pic) with cultured butter and Roe!!! #duck garlic sausage with beluga #lentils In-house made #pasta with #Crab 🦀 and Chili Tomato Sauce topped with crispy breadcrumbs. -(Sean shared a surprise of red Envinate which was perfect.) With the next 2 desserts Sean suggested to try tastes of 2 wines which paired perfectly with: #labnah ice cream with #greek olive oil #parmesan #cheesecake with honey and cracked pepper on top We loved everything about this dinner and highly recommend you go. Make sure you get a reservation before you go and then sit back and enjoy your takeoff and landing- the journey is well worth it! We can’t wait to go back! @ Nancy's Hustle

When @theleftoverchefs visit, we know the #culinary creations will be soooo good that there will be NO 💥 leftovers !!! This was one of many delish creations: Perfectly cooked #Venison with a blueberry #miso sauce with sides of chard and radishes along with sweet potato, ginger, orange zest pancake😎😎. 2nd pic shows the fun #wines enjoyed throughout the evening. @ Austin, Texas

And then after #champagne education - so much fun with a blind tasting #wine guessing game with @jamasoniii @everythingliquid @stevenpaulmcdonald @joellecousins @lexeyjohnson and more and of course had to find an #aligote that Steven had not had😀😀 #sommchat
