A great time was had by all. The food was phenomenal. Nino was a great host, even though the restaurant was packed. We missed Tom Shea as he was celebrating his Anniversary. I didn’t realize it until I was posted the menu that I provided the same dessert wine as Tom Shea’s last dinner.  Tom also missed out on a Vine Dawg port that I discovered I still had. I found 2 bottles in my wine rack. I’ll give him the 2nd bottle the next time I see him.
