The name Planet Gemini would imply that this club has two sides to it, but that's not quite accurate. There are at least three. Since opening Planet Gemini more than 20 years ago, the Lane brothers?Frankie and Anthony?have built a venue that functions as a comedy club, a live-music space, and a full-service restaurant. Each night, the club transforms into something new: on Tuesday, Frankie, a master chef, puts together a menu of homemade Italian food as Anthony croons classic Italian songs; Wednesday and Sunday are dance nights, with Latin bands taking the stage as the audience dances the pachanga, merengue, and salsa; and Thursday is for karaoke, during which professional lighting and sound make amateurs feel like rock stars or a circus tiger.

On Friday and Saturday night, however, the music gives way to laughter, as the stage is reserved for a rotation of nationally touring comedians. Although Planet Gemini is mostly known for featuring up-and comers?many of whom have been featured on HBO, Comedy Central, and other national programming?they've also had the good fortune to host famous funny men such as George Lopez and Jimmy Fallon.

The Galante family is rooted in Carmel. Ancestor J.F. Devendorf founded the town of Carmel, and in 1969, the Galante family purchased a 700-acre cattle ranch in Carmel Valley and began to plant grape vines back in the early '80s, initially specializing in Cabernet Sauvignon. Skip to 1994?Jack Galante, great-grandson of J.F. Devendorf, decided to build a fully functional winery and estate-bottled wines, and now their varietals number in the dozens. The estate frequently host events in their Tasting Room in Carmel and at the Estate in Carmel Valley where wine enthusiasts can swish samples in the tasting room.
