Begin 2018 with a birthday celebration and bubbly??  Sign me up.  I am here for the 10th birthday celebration at Wildfire, Tysons Galleria, 3rd floor, McLean, VA, on Friday, January 26, 2018.  Executive Chefs Moreno Espinoza and Edwin Amaya will prepare and present a custom four-course menu, each paired with a sparkling wine from around the world.  The part that has us excited about the clock striking 12 on December 31st is that yours truly will be the guest speaker for the evening.  Yes, you read that right:  JKGF is the guest speaker for this fab event!  Saolo A. Aguilar, Wine Consultant for Service Distributing, Inc., will also be on hand to talk about the wine selections.
