It's no secret I enjoy a great glass of wine in a fabulous atmosphere. Add incredible food and you have yourself one loyal patron. Nine years ago, when I moved to Santa Cruz for college one of my girlfriends came to visit me. She had just returned from Switzerland where she had been an au pair for a French family. As we were walking down the street catching up, she suddenly said "Thirst" (or Soif in French) as she noticed the name of a new wine bar moving in and has been in the back of my mind since. Saturday night, I finally realized what I had been missing all along. Just go.
A tiny treasure that was only steps away. I plan on making up for lost time.
