Caffeinated and starstruck, we pummel down PCH, cruising cozily between the vast Pacific and the Santa Monica Mountains. Just under two hours, Malibu, Oxnard, Ventura and Carpinteria later, we have arrived in Santa Barbara.

We emerge rejuvenated onto State Street, the main drag of downtown Santa Barbara where you should definitely pop into the original McConnell's Fine Ice Creams for a cone of Turkish Coffee or Olive Oil and Almond, but we were feeling a bit more mischevious. We looked at our watches and noticed that it was wine o’clock.
