Holiday fun in wine country
Spicy Manor is a gorgeous venue for the event. It reminds me of a homey ranch. As you walk into the manor, you see an xmas tree with our Yelpy stocking stuffers, yay! There's also a pool table & a bar area for us to sample their Spicy Vine wines.

We hit up Shannon & her photobooth only a bajillion times throughout the night. It's only a Yelp staple & must do, right? Even CM Kevin got in on the camera action. Even Stephen L had a photo sesh with his prize of ham & hot dogs, haha!
True Story Foods provided some yummy organic meats for us to sample. My favorite was their chicken sausage with mozarella, basil & tomato, yum! Pastanza provided a big pasta bar with many veggies, 3 sauces, meatballs/shrimp & pasta. You got your pasta all freshly cooked at the end of the bar, all warm & delish!

By the way, Stephen won some prizes from True Story Foods: honey ham & sausages. He was so happy that we decided to do a montage of photos in the booth, haha! You can see more photos from the booth here.
Thanks Kevin, Spicy Manor & the other vendors for a great start to all the holiday parties to come! :)
