Fall Release Celebration at Lytton Springs
Saturday, September 7th
11am – 5pm
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!
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!
Here at Monte Bello, we are tickled to the point of spiritual ecstasy that we will once again be joined by the AMAZING folks from Pizza Politana, who will once again be driving their wood-fired pizza oven up our mountain — yep, you read that right! — will once again be driving their wood-fired pizza oven up our mountain to provide for our guests the maximum level of pizza grooviness possible. Check this out, from the 2012 edition:
I love pizza.
I love pizza so much.
Pizza Pizza Pizza Pizza Pizza!
I love Pizza Politana so much!
At Lytton Springs, the VERY aptly named FEAST will be providing an internationally-themed FEAST for our guests to the north!
