New joint in Healdsburg - "The Wurst"

Last weekend in Healdsburg we had the chance to try a new place in Healdsburg, a Sausage and Burger place called The Wurst I was drawn by the outdoor seating which is premium on a nice summer night in Healdsburg - but also by the $3.50 Microbrews on tap for Happy Hour. Suck it Zeitgeist. Little Sumpin on tap, beer garden, 9 diffe... on Twitpic The place has good brats and a "Smashburger". Owner Charles Bell was running around the place talking to people, talking up his pasture raised meats for burgers. I had to admit they were quite good, and I had a couple of Little Sumpin Ales on tap.
The prices were quite reasonable, and there is a decadent chocolate ice cream filled cream puff with chocolate sauce for dessert. Bonne Chance to Charles!

Cycling in Healdsburg

We already knew this - but Bicycling Magazine confirms it...

Healdsburg is one of the top cycling destinations there is!

Healdsburg, California
This quaint town is an ideal staging ground for exploring Sonoma wine country by bike. Start rides with a homemade energy bar at the Jimtown Store and end with gelato sandwiches at Bovolo. Book a tasting ride with Wine Country Bikes, or visit on August 21 for the Tour de Vine, during which you'll ride with local vintners and chefs and feast on goat cheese and baguettes at the farmers' market. Sleep off your food coma at the new eco-chic h2hotel, which offers earth-friendly amenities along with secure bicycle storage and a collection of hip Public bikes guests can take for a spin.
