It isn’t summer without a couple of intimate(ish) outdoor concert venues featuring great shows, but more importantly great food and wine. We’re smitten with Glen Ellen’s Broadway Under the Stars series, featuring favorite tunes from Broadway and beyond with actual Broadway actors. Get there early for noshes from Tips Tri-Tip, Ultra Crepes, Palooza Catering, Cookie Take a Bite (best chocolate chip cookies ever), Glen Ellen Star, Fork Catering and wine from dozens of local wineries. Tickets and details online.
Meanwhile, the Rodney Strong Summer Concert Series hosts Chris Botti, Chris Isaak and Mindi Abair in their outdoor green. Wine flows, picnics are welcome and the winery serves up tasty bites before the show. Details online(https://www.rodneystrong.com/).
