Goodbye 2008

Its hard to believe that 2008 is gone, I have been writing for about a year now, Tastings opened in September and we have not even noticed the past 4 months go by. Thank you to my staff & co- workers, who most of are away from there homes to be here to make Tastings a success. And thanks to all of our supporters,our wonderful guests, those who have written about us, and those who make it possible to operate Tastings on a daily basis.
We are looking forward to continued success in 2009 and cant wait to share our love of food and wine with new guests, make new friends and continue to spread the "Tastings" bug.
