Anyone that goes into Basic Necessities [1] in Nellysford on a regular basis knows Wednesday night is Kay’s regular wine tasting. But, this past Wednesday’s regular wine tasting morphed into an impromptu surprise 10th anniversary celebration for the quaint Nellysford restaurant. (See page 22 of the current June ’07 issue of NCL for more on thier 10th anniversary)
