You have shown me true evidence that greatness is measured by how much YOU give back, support and share. For every level that we attain, we have our eye on the next one.

As with each pop-up, the curated wine pairings amplify the experience.

This summer has given me the opportunity to see my city in an even better light. Let me state that I am not looking at my city through #champagne filled glasses.

Let’s face it, YOU are a busy person that likes REALLY good food, right?

I love the fact that from every industry of importance, we have greatness.
