Looking for a winery with an outdoor restaurant and an attached hotel

Valentine's Day filter: My girlfriend has a relatively specific request for Valentine's Day: "an outdoor restaurant at a vineyard... that has an attached hotel." A somewhat cheaper version of this would be the idea. Ideally, it'd be $300/night or less and somewhere within ~2 hours drive of Palo Alto, California. Any ideas?

How to sell a car in Colorado with an expired California registration?

I recently moved from California to Colorado, then acquired a new car. Meanwhile, my California registration on the old car expired. I want to sell the old car in Colorado, but it has no current registration and was never registered in this state. How can I take people on test drives? Just risk it? Is signing over the California title sufficient, then it's their job to get the car registered? Headache city, any advice is much appreciated.

Instead of arresting you, how about some pepper spray?

I'm having an online discussion (which I am trying to keep civil) with a group of people who claim that the police in California have the right to pepper spray anyone who does not obey a police order. How in the world can this be true? I'm not a lawyer - but my gut tells me that there has to be case law to the contrary. Help me out!

Moving to the (north) Bay Area of California: How do I best ensure that I (and my assets) survive The Big One unharmed? Eg.

Expert or engineer advice would be great. (I'm more interested in how to find an earthquake-proof building and area, than in how to earthquake-proof my stuff once it's inside a building.)

Can I smoke on the stairs across from my apartment?

There are some nice stairs with some sculptures on them across from my apartment (leading up to a parking garage), open to the public. People and security guards sit there and lounge and smoke cigarettes frequently (I can see from my apartment) However when I sit there or smoke cigarettes there, a security guard always tells me it is closed (no matter what time, most recently 4:30PM on a Saturday, sometimes after work like 6:30 on a Tuesday) and I cannot sit there.
