October 27, 2011: I received a special invitation to attend a private celebration in honor of the opening of the Santa Maria Novella store in Chevy Chase, Maryland the other night.
Chris Johnson, Jason Barnes and Yene Damtew (I posted about her fabulosity here) posed for a pic.
The tasting room Wine Bar and Shop kept the drinks flowing.
