If you’re a beer and wine fan AND headed to Maui anytime in the future…here are a couple MUST SEE spots for your visit! On my recent (work) trip to Maui we were able to visit and tour the island’s hottest spots for beer and wine…Maui Brewing Company and MauiWine. It was actually my second visit to MauiWine, I had went there previously with my sister and dad…but this time I got more of a “behind the scenes” look! And — I got to spin the footage for each place into feature segments for ABC7 Bay Area LIFE and you can watch them below!
Today I made my last appearance on-air as Co-Host of The Hampton Roads Show, and I will be returning home to the Bay Area next week! It’s been lots of fun over the last 13 months on the show and I’ve had some exciting experiences and met lots of wonderful people, starting with the staff and crew on the show and at the station…as well as the chefs, comedians and range of guests who’ve stopped by the show too!
And — of course when you “leave” the next question is where are you going!?!? So, the short and simple answer is I’m leaving to be closer to family. I will be working as a freelancer in the Bay – so if you want to send work my way.. 🙂 And, I will be have more time to focus on my duties as a Mommy to the best little boys anyone could ever ask for!!
Here’s a little Hampton Roads Show photo trip down memory lane…
In late January I participated in the Coastal Virginia Wine Fest “Grape Stomp”…and my competition was a Nathan James of iHeart Media. At the time I didn’t really consider that the weight and (foot) size difference might give him the advantage..but in hindsight…grrr!! All in all it was lots of fun, and I finally just found some photos and a video of it to share! For the record, it was my first time EVER doing something like this and I stomped out about 16 ounces…which I thought was pretty good! Nathan on the other hand had done this once before and he trumped my with something like 22 ounces?? Sheesh!! Enjoy the pictures and video below…
And — YES, I did take a taste of my stomped grapes…since I was on the losing end!! :/
Check out this video below for a quick glimpse of the competition… stomping is from about 1:20- 1:50
On my show, we have thing game called, “The Stack”…it’s basically like a big Jenga Tower with wood block and you want to pull one out, place it on top and NOT be the one to knock it down! So for the past 3 weeks, we’ve been asking our guests to pull from it and take turns…and every day for the past week,we though tit was gonna go! I often go in on my co-host cuz he is kind obsessive with this thing! haha! Anyway, today was a snow day and we didn’t have many guests and I got called out to pull one…. I wasn’t sure it was gonna happen, BUT… I DID IT!!! Whew!! Watch an encore of my performance below!!! 😉
Check out this quick edit I did, a “montage” with several of the celebrities I have had the opportunity to interview over the years…. Can you name all the “celebs” in this video?? 🙂
