Vino Vino wants to send a warm and hearty thank you to Kermit Lynch and Ricky Fataar who spun tracks from Kermit’s new record, Man’s Temptation, last night at Vino Vino.
Ricky Fataar, left, with Kermit. Ricky has played and written songs for musical greats like the Beach Boys, Boz Scaggs, Bonnie Raitt, and also appeared in the 1978 hit parody of the Beatles, All You Need Is Cash (The Rutles).
We’d also like to thank all the folks that came out to hear Kermit and Ricky speak.
Kermit’s better half, Gail Skoff, above, artist, photographer, and simply delightful lady.
Chef Esteban Escobar created a menu inspired by the travels of Kermit Lynch and we served 30 Kermit Lynch wines by the glass. (If you missed Kermit last night, you can still taste “all Kermit by the glass” for a limited time at Vino Vino!).

Some of the top wine professionals in Texas also came out last night, like Miss Jane (above, “Austin’s Favorite Wine Guru”), Alfonso Cevola from Dallas (Italian Wine Guy), sommeliers June Rodil, Julio Hernandez, Craig Collins, and Mark Sayre, and Wes Marshall, Austin Chronicle wine writer.

Kermit told us he had a great time in Austin and said he would come back next year with a full band to play. Kermit, YOU ROCK!
