Whiskey in the Wilderness

We spent a perfect Sunday (January 14th) at Spring Mountain State Ranch at Justin Kingsley Hall & Friends' 2nd annual Whiskey in the Wilderness. Fire cooked food by

some of the top chefs in the Vegas valley, fancy pants whiskey cocktails, ridiculously fine weather and 200 or so friends and friends of friends.

Doesn't get better than this.

By design, I stay surrounded by people who can cook! L to R, Jolene Manina, Rocksan Clark, Nina and Mimi Manchev and Valeria Varela.

Jerry created a firey, dynamic print on canvas for auction at the event. Much like last year, he created smaller prints for the Chef's and Mixologists to commemorate the afternoon. I don't know about Jerry, but I'm hoping for some invitations into their homes to see where they hung the prints 😉🙏🏻 #feedme
