We took a day trip to Sebastopol last week because I had seen an article about The Barlow, a refurbished factory area that is home to breweries, art galleries, and restaurants. We thought that it would be fun to drive up there and check it all out. We went the back way, up to Lodi, and then west. By the time that we got there, it was after noon, and we were starved, so we headed straight to Zazu Kitchen and Farm Restaurant.
We would have liked to sit outside, it looked so nice, but unfortunately we were there on the coldest day of the year, so we went in. The restaurant was busy, and a nice waitress seated us at our table and told us that we absolutely had to have the bacon wrapped dates for our appetizer, so we did! They were great, we each had one, and they tasted so good. They were so rich, I don’t think that I could eat more than just one.
And then for lunch, Al had a huge bowl of muscles that he said was great, and I had a pepperocini, ham, and pork sandwich with a mustard potato salad that was delicious. It, too, was so rich that I could only eat half, and I took the other half home and ate it for dinner. After we ate, we went out to check out the rest of the place. Just across the street there were a line of large bronze sculptures sitting in front of a building.
It was the Bronze Plus Art Foundry, a place where artists can have their sculptures casted. We peeked inside, and there were huge machines, and people with protective gear running them, and it was loud, and it looked wonderful! I want to check to see if they give tours, I think that would be very interesting and something that I know absolutely nothing about! I love learning about new things.
