    It's a meaty, merlot-esque kind of March party around the wine country town.

    BUELLTON CHILI AND WINE FESTIVAL: Over "...30 wineries and 20 chili/salsa cooks..." will be on the grounds of the Flying Flags RV Resort, with 21-and-over visitors trying both the hot (chili/salsa) and the cool (vino) out as they stroll in the (fingers crossed) soft sunshine the area is known for. There's a Brew Bus from Santa Barbara — it's $25 bucks — or a number of stay-over spots around Buellton and the region. Your ticket to the tasting-filled fest? It's $45, plus an additional fee. A chili-only ticket is available, too, so go over all of the goodness. As for pea soup and local suds? If you make a Buellton-kind of weekend of it, you can experience it all.
