Jo-I am going to have to hit our leftover lasagna in the fridge after looking at all those great pictures of your kickoff luncheon for your "Taste of Burlington"!!  It looks like the townsfolk will be well fed later in July!

Jo, "A Taste of Burlington" looks like a tremendous event.  The prices sound almost as good as the food looks.

Hi Jo,

Wow! Everything looks great. I suspect you had an incredible time? Or did you hang around the wine tasting too long and can't remember LOL

We're so fortunate to have a great abundance of excellent restaurants in Burlington and area....and at such reasonable prices that everyone should be able to try out a few of them this summer.

I had a half glass of Chardonnay from an Ontario winery and that was my limit for the day. It was wonderful though, as are all of the Ontario wines I've tasted.

It was a very pleasant afternoon and a great introduction to many of Burlington's finest restaurants.
