AN OFFBEAT PAIRING: We're up for any "wine and --" combo that isn't run-of-the-mill. Like a wine tasting and cat adoption fair. Chardonnays and bouquets (competitive flower arranging, natch). So the Vinyasa and Vino class at the St. Regis Monarch Beach caught our combo-affectionate eye. It's what it sounds like -- yoga techniques, good stretching, plus a wine tasting.
SATURDAY, AUG. 28: The 5:30-7:30 p.m. session is open to guests staying at the Dana Point resort, and members, too, but here's where our eye lands, just in terms of SoCal locals not looking to book an overnight: spa guests may attend as well. That means if you book a massage or facial at the St. Regis, you can join in. Vinyasa & Vino is complimentary, by the way. Even more shoulder-knot-undoing.
