  • If you’re on @instagramforbusiness or pleasure, you’re probably thinking about how to get more likes and followers. I am, so whenever I see an article on this topic, I give it a scan. The latest was on @medium — and it reminded me of one of the most powerful things I learned from a digital content strategy class @medillschool 🐾 and building the email content marketing program at @houzz Marketplace. Here it is:

1. Figure out what your audience needs or wants to know. 
2. Deliver that consistently with entertaining and beautiful posts. 
Keep creating content with value, and your tribe will find you. .

  • “A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty and in the point of Life.”- Thomas Jefferson 🇫🇷 My last snap of @notredame - what a Gothic marvel it was. I have to think it influenced circa 1857 Sainte-Clotilde in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

  • Saw my first ever @alvinailey performance with the family last night and wow!  Part of the fun of modern dance is figuring out what it means to you. The new ‘EN’ by Jessica Lang was stunning. Go see it! 📷: Paul Kolnik .

  • Can’t get this wine out of my head. Such an exotically beautiful bio Cab Franc from the Saumur-Champigny 🍷Sipped from a Burgundy glass she revealed pink rose petals, raspberry, red currants, goji berry, a French country garden and expensive incense. Not quite Scheherazade, but it’s quite a tale. About $25 @kermitlynchwine .

  • Thinking about all the families and wine folks threatened by flooding in Sonoma tonight, especially Mac McDonald of #visioncellars 
I first met him when he did a San Diego wine dinner with @andrehmack of Maison Noir. He’s the dean of the African American winemaker’s club here in Sonoma/Napa and he makes some fine, terroir-driven and expressive Pinot Noirs from spots like Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Lucía Highlands. 🍇
The son of a corn whiskey bootlegger from Texas, Mac says a taste of red Burgundy changed his life. When he arrived in Napa, he became close friends with Chuck Wagner of @caymuscab fame. Even today, Mac makes his wines at @joey.wagner @coppercanewines 
If you’re curious, contact  Mac and his wife Lil (linkinbio) for a private tasting or join one of their laidback wine events in March.🍷🙏🏾🍷

  • Fascinated by the biutiful Spanish tile oven at @bazaarbyjose meat in Las Vegas — and the delicious things that came out of it, like the seared wagyu air bread filled with Parmesan cream and pork secreto with apples, thyme and mustard. Looking forward to my next visit🥩🥓🍖
