Is summer officially over? Please say it isn't so. Thankfully according to the Farmer's Almanac it isn't over quite yet because the fall equinox doesn't occur until September 22. For most of us though, Labor Day ceremoniously marks the end of summer so I'm including a few pictures of a southern-style Labor Day party we designed over the weekend hosted by my cousins Shane and Suzanne Pavitt who are vintners and winemakers in Calistoga. Guests dined on pulled pork sandwiches, watermelon salad, root beer-baked beans and a variety of other delicious southern specialties all effortlessly whipped together by our hostess Suzanne.
