Happy New Year!

Thank you everyone who joined us for the festivities for the 10 year TJO anniversary and for the NYE party we had (both crazy evenings!).

2019 is going to start hot, with our wine dinner resuming on January 30: this time the Boss wants to pour the varietals that make up a Bordeaux blend.

The next day on January 31, is the kick off to the Fiesta de las Golondrinas with the Taste of San Juan! We have participated in this event every year since we have been open, and we will continue this tradition this year. More details about it can be found here. Make sure to buy your pre-sale tickets; it tends to sell out.
