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.

Remember in the Wizard of Oz when the great Oz  says “don’t pay attention to that man behind the curtain!”?

These are the women behind the curtain and the great Rodney is lucky to have them!

Good dawg, Rodney!
