Big news: the San Diego Kid heads back west

That’s me, The San Diego Kid, back in 1978, when I was just 11 years old, the year the whole world changed around me (but that’s another story, for another time).

I wanted to let y’all know that me and my squaw will be heading west next month to pour and talk about natural wine at the first-ever San Diego Natural Wine Summit at Jaynes Gastropub.

Now, mind you, it ain’t that we ain’t coming back to Austin, Texas. That’s the Kid’s home now. But summertime is here and the Kid has a hankering for some ceviche and some waves… and some natural wine.

Want to drink what me and Tracie B drink? Send me an email and I’ll add you to my email blast list: I’ll be doing a 6-pack offering next week, including some of my favorite wines and Dora and Patrizia’s Vino Nobile di Montepulciano — stinky and natural like we like it!

  1. Hey Dr. J (and his beautiful Princess Bride), thanks for the heads up in SD. Jayne’s was AWESOME! Everyone was great. Your viral presence exuded from every brick, totally felt like home. Super wine selection, great food. Clearly on some level, your job in this world is to touch people, infuse them with your joy for life, and move on. Just like the hombre in the photo above. The foreshadowing…

  2. Wow. Nice comment from Frank. Sorry I won’t make it to San Diego but sounds like a blast. Congrats to Gastropub for their listing as one of the “cool” place to hang out and to you and Tracie B. for the impending “nozze.” Big year for July babies. Have fun, Susannah
