California the Beautiful.
The time to go to wine country, it's said, is during the crush, in late September, early October. Pay a flat fee, go to a participating winery, hold a red-stained glass at the ready. Drink.

Another long summer's come and gone. I don't know why it always ends this way. The boardwalk's quiet and the carnival rides are as empty as my broken heart tonight. But I close my eyes and one more time we're spinnin around and you're holdin on tightly. The words came out, I kissed your mouth, no 4th of July has ever burned so brightly. You had to go, I understand, but you promised you'd be back again, and so I wonder 'round this town, 'til summer comes around."
