One of my favorite spots to dance when home is at East Fork Cellars, a winery in Ridgefield, Washington. On the weekends, cover bands play all the old classic rock tunes, and I'm such a sucker for this kind of partying! My parents took me here a few times just a couple months before I left for Korea, and I've been longing to go back ever since. A couple weekends ago, we attended with a few friends and danced our faces off at the last live show at that particular venue. Playing that night was The Cellar Rats, led by founder Jeff Waddell, photographed below.

That night, there was a guest jazz singer in town, who accompanied The Cellar Rats for a handful of songs.

And me!

The wine tasting room is no longer located in Ridgefield, but rather, downtown at the Slocum House. I believe that cover bands, such as The Cellar Rats and The Abbey Roadsters, will be playing there this summer, so if anyone wants to join me and the old folks, you'll know where to find me ...

So, as some of you may know, I'm currently back in Washington State! I arrived here at the beginning of March, and since I've been back in the states, I've seen a few girlfriends, celebrated my dad's birthday, and visited Megan Wetterau in San Francisco.

For my dad's party, my mom hired a chef to come to our house and cook paella.

Upon my mom's request, us party goers came to the celebration prepared with a story about my pops.

While in San Fran, I basically didn't do much besides attend Megan's bar (The Wild Hare) and start the party early. And when I say, "I" started the party early, I mean "Scotty, Wild Hare's practically-famous bartender," did this.

While here, I practiced my whole "taking photos of strangers" thing and photographed a few of the brunch time customers.

When I wasn't sipping whiskey and photographing strangers, I was sightseeing, brunchin', and documenting textures around the city.
