By Lisa Kampeter

It doesn’t happen often.  Before the Dining Divas even finished their meals, the ladies were already talking about a return visit.  One Organized Diva had her next order already decided.  Another Aggressive Diva had even requested several of the restaurant’s business cards to share with people she knew.  We all had a great time, and, all agreed, Bella Vino is fantastico.

This could be about a 10-page column on how impressed I am with the way that the American Athletes are handling themselves in Sochi. Every time that I think that I had gotten the perfect story for this week’s column I found a new one, so I am going to put them all together and see what I get.
