Tidbits for November

Saglie returns, International Deli opens, and a new Maui Taco due?

The boy is back in town The Grapevine host and all-around personality Gabe Saglie is returning to Santa Barbara from his two-year sojourn in New York. The folks at Elements gave him a proper welcome last night: a winemaker dinner featuring the vintages from Ampelos Cellars and Consilience Winery.
