Last Thursday, SOMETHING EXTRA was in high spirits as it was all about wine. Marketing manager of Select Brands and wine connoisseur Debra Taylor was the presenter at The Gleaner-sponsored Restaurant Week soirée at the Eden Gardens. Not very far away, at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel, the Japanese ambassador hosted a sake presentation and tasting. Indulge!
