    HMB,

    Glad that you mentioned that you received your tix. I haven't, so I just emailed Chris about it.

    Didn't hear of it until this.  Some German friends will be in town, so whatever they want to do.
  • Great conversation! I am putting on the Eggfest and couldn't help but chime in. Bring your German friends, my 81 year old father will be there and not only is he an egghead, but he was born and raised in Germany. He always loves to speak German with people from there.

    Oh how I wish I was out there.  An Eggfest and then a trip to Russian River Brewing Co for a nightcap is a damn near perfect day!

    Cheers All!

    Oh yeah, Salvation is a good beer.  I was just at RRBC last month.  Made quite the night of it. Usually have some bottles mail ordered to me here in Cincy.
    Absolutely love it out there.

    Yeah, I enjoy their brews, and usually send a few back to my buddy back east a few times a year.
  • I'm going to be up there that Friday. I might have to stay over and hit the fest. Sounds like a blast.

    Yes, unfortunately for me, I too will have to pass X(

    It seems that this year, for the various Bay Area / NorCal Eggfests, I've had something going on - for Smitty's "Eggs by the Bay," in San Jose I was on a road trip of the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington, Vancouver, Whistler). 

    And for this "Eggs on the River" in Sonoma, that's the same day as the Aerosmith concert I've got tickets for!! 

    The only other NorCal Eggfest I know of is "EggtoberWest" in Sacramento, and I believe it's in October, I think? 

    At any rate, the "Eggs on the River" sure looks to be an EGG-cellent time - and in such a BEAUTIFUL area!!!! We were just up in that area earlier in the summer (Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Yountville, Calistoga).  Did a tour of the Chateau Montelena winery (the one featured in the movie "Bottle Shock" which was the first American winery to win the big wine competition in Paris).

    Have fun & take LOTS OF PICS - SURE WISH I COULD GO!!!
    Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee

    I was wondering why you didn't make "Eggs By The Bay"

  • I was wondering why you didn't make "Eggs By The Bay"
    heh... yeah, I think the day that the Eggs by the Bay was held, we were at Mt. St. Helens (luckily it didn't erupt) heheh... ;)

    Last year I actually volunteered @ Eggs by the Bay, along w/ my GF & our son (we were the ones running around, picking up everyone's garbage) .  :-&

    But this year, because we had to book our hotels & what not way in advance, I knew for quite awhile I wouldn't be able to make it to Eggs by the Bay. 

    Between missing that, and missing this Eggs on the River, I haven't been to any Eggfests this year (hopefully they'll still have that EggtoberWest in Sac)...
