WRP is hyped for the new kosher coffee house, we're hyped for some excellent wine from 2013 - but we better drink it before the 9 days! We also discuss the trials and tribulations (and elation) to being invited to a new Shabbos table. But we know it's ok to be sorry, not sorry, but not "sorry, not sorry!"
