You need a "Things to Do Around Napa" category so that I can nominate SegwayNapa. It is the most fun you can have on 2 wheels, (including my Harley) and Gale is GREAT!

Great suggestion, Bob. I will add it to the list for the next round of contests, thanks!
Ken Ott June 26, 2012 at 05:03 PM
Another Suggestion: a category for Fire Protection or Health and Safety. Then I could nominate Best Fire Equipment for everything from turnkey AED Programs (saving lives) to Fire Extinguishers and service to wire splints in their First Aid Cabinets.

There's no room here for Rancho Gordo!
Louisa Hufstader (Editor) June 26, 2012 at 05:30 PM
I'll nominate Rancho Gordo for gift shop this time around, Steve. You have cool foodie stuff found nowhere else! Ken, we don't want to leave you out either so thank you for the suggestion.

More categories suggested for the next round: chiropractor, spa, optometrist ... Keep 'em coming!

Educational services? There's no category for us at Sylvan Learning!
Anne Schramm June 27, 2012 at 05:12 AM
Louisa, come on over and see what we're up to this summer! Lots of fun and learning going on in our center...we'd love to show you.

What about Wine and Cigar shops? This is Napa isn't it? I'll nominate Napa Valley Wine & Cigar.They're the best!
Louisa Hufstader (Editor) July 03, 2012 at 02:37 AM
Thanks for the suggestion, I agree that NVW&S is terrific. We'll add them to Gift Shops this time, Brian, and add the category you suggest for the next round of contests. Sound good?
