That sounds like a hell of time. I want to a similar event this past weekend to raise money for d'Art Center in Norfolk as well as their programs for kids. Good food, good wine, good times...

This event is like that on steroids. I encourage all to go that have a chance. It will most certainly be a great food and wine experience. What ticks me off... I will be in town, but at a party for my mother in law. Maybe I can sneak away.
