Congrats to Brent Kroll and Gina Chersevani!

Congrats to Brent Kroll of Adour for winning the Sommelier Showdown last week!
I was one of the timers at the showdown.
Also, congrats to Gina Chersevani for winning the Cupid's Not Stupid Cocktail Contest.  We had a blast judging the event.  Gina made a creative Pisco sour-style drink called, "It Takes Two."  She used 2 different types of Pisco that complimented each other.  We also loved Dan Searing's delicious punch.  He was there signing his new book, The Punch Bowl: 75 Recipes Spanning Four Centuries of Wanton Revelry.
I unfortunately got sick and couldn't make the Grand Tasting, but I heard it was a huge success!
