  • Leslee and Michael,
    I just wanted to thank you both for the spectacular evening you hosted for our group. My wife and I and our guests—and everyone we talked to—had a wonderful time.
    I have never learned so much about beer and wine, glasses, their history and regions, and “pairing” the right way. You were both easy to listen to and are amazingly good at what you do. I’m impressed.
    Thanks, again, for your time and I’m sure our paths will cross again in the future!
