We’d also like to thank all the folks that came out to hear Kermit and Ricky speak.

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!).
