You can see the guests were entertained by the Count's world wide stories of adventure, success and failure.
Chef Alex Rosado of Post 154came out to talk to us about the wonderful food he prepared to pair with the wines.
He is originally from Puerto Rico and brings with him an impressive culinary lineage from the prestigious Ritz Carlton in San Juan, Puerto Rico, The Biltmore Hotel in Miami, Florida, and Executive Chef of Little Palm Island in Little Torch Key, Florida.

The food was delicious! We had: chilled oysters shrimp cocktail octopus & avocado pinchos seared tuna rolls smoked salmon sliders brussel sprouts eggplant meatballs adobo chicken pops BBQ short ribs & black beans seared scallops & grits
It was a perfect night to wine and dine on Post 154's outside patio.
The fun summer evening closed with some final words from the Count of Buena Vista!
