How do you show Mom the perfect Mothers’ Day experience? At least in our family, the day should include wine tasting. Following a great lunch just off Jack London Square, we walked a few more blocks to Urban Legend. Mom felt the love!

It was a lovely day strolling Jack London Square, enjoying a bustling Farmers Market on this warm August Sunday. As we reached the end of the waterfront walking path we came upon one of the anchor tenants of the Square, Rosenblum Cellars. It had been several years since our last visit, so we went in to get reacquainted.
