We’re blessed to have not only the Jay’s anniversary luncheon this Saturday, Feb. 17, but two MORE wine dinners coming up later in the month, at Ollie’s Place (their first!) and at Carrabba’s Italian Grill (and no, they’re NOT on the same night!) What glorious opportunities to explore the delightful mysteries of food and wine pairings! And a mighty thank-you to the Dayton-based wine enthusiast who puts together this amazing tastings list and allows us to copy and paste it here. Cheers!
