Solvang is a town full of windmills that contain t-shirt shops. After the drive up from Los Angeles and a night of airaoke (air guitar karaoke) at the Maverick Saloon in Santa Ynez on Friday, we didn’t feel any need to get out of bed too early on Saturday morning. Plus, the garret-like room we had at our hotel the Wine Valley Inn was so cozy. We had a little time to walk around this Danish-themed town before Dan and Kate’s wedding. I giggled as I pointed to pastries at one of the bakeries: “Look, all of these are danishes!” We found a table for lunch at Root 246, a restaurant that got a great review in the L.A. Times. The Uruguay vs. Germany World Cup game was playing in the bar, so that’s where we sat. It was hard to pay attention to the food because the game was so exciting, but the burger with peach mustard turned out to be pretty amazing. The plate came with the most delicious pickles I’ve ever eaten and I love pickles so much I’ve drunk the vinegar out of the jar.
