Paas eggs, glowing with chemical dyes and artificial colors. My memories are vivid: the sulphuric smell of boiled eggs, the sharp hit of vinegar in my nostrils, the metal egg holder shaped like an old person's eyeglasses, and the mystical colored dye tablets. The connection between hard-boiled eggs and the Christian religion is pretty much lost on me, though its symbolism of new life rings true, especially on a Spring day like today. Anyway, it doesn't matter too much—they're a tradition, and that means enough. Click here to continue.

Friday night 30 guests donated $30 each for an educational wine dinner featuring Jessica Killen, team member from the 2012 Whole Planet Foundation volunteer program. Guests learned about Jessica's life changing trip to India, and enjoyed delicious recipes that were created first hand by microcredit recipients from across the globe! In addition, we held a silent auction where guests bid on artwork donated by Park Lane team members! Total money raised from the dinner & silent auction totaled $1,205!!

Awesome day here in Encinitas! Local resident songwriter Jack Tempchin launched his “Peaceful Easy Feeling” wine with an acoustic set of original compositions. “Slow Dancing (Swaying to the Music)”, “Already Gone” and of course “Peaceful Easy Feeling” were some of the crowd favorites. He also sang a song about Tijuana that he wrote with Tom Waits, saying “this was written back in the 60’s – back in 1972 – the best year of the 60’s.” Strong community energy in the store, a very California beach vibe – even more than usual!
Right now the wine is exclusive at Encinitas. We blew through almost 14 cases today, and have a huge backorder for early next week. Good stuff!!!
