  1. We went to the last Jimmy’s wine dinner with David Uyger and highly recommend it to everyone. Paul and crew do an incredible job with these dinners, we’re trying to make arrangements to go to this one as well.

  2. Uygur is spelled with a “u” ;) I was also at the last Jimmy’s/Uygur event, had a great time and the food was excellent.
