Oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man, I LOVE this time of year!!!

Of COURSE Late Summer into Early Fall is a magic time of year in Northern California!

And of COURSE the onset of #Harvest2013 is exciting beyond measure!

But FALL RELEASE, man!

Shazam!

Our annual Fall Release Events are some of my very favorite events of the year, and my only ever regret is that I so rarely get to enjoy the Lytton Springs edition.

But YOU can!

In fact, you can enjoy both, because, just for your convenience, we’ve scheduled them on back-to-back weekends!

Shazam!

Check this out, from the 2012 edition:

  1. Christopher — That Pizza looks Great! Unfortunately I’ll be hiking in Utah that weekend and can’t make it — Give Les & Rene my pizza (or you can have it!)

  2. Okay, you guys need to take this show on the road. First stop . . . Chicago, Or the boondocks of Toledo, OH. I’m very sad now.

  3. Daaaaum! Already planning to come to Monte Bello…I might have to jet up to Lytton Springs too!
