    You know that Lilly’s is a great place to find fantastic food. After all, it’s been around since 1988 and Chef/Owner Kathy Cary, who has been recognized far and wide for her skills, never fails to provide satisfying American/Southern cuisine. She’s cool beyond cool, and this Thursday, January 24th, the crew at Lilly’s Bistro is hosting a 5-course Argentina wine dinner at 6:30 PM!

    Each course will be paired with a selected wine from Argentina, and wine expert David DuBou of Vintner Select will be on hand to speak about the wines and how/why they were chosen for each dish. Below is the menu:
