Launny Steffens

The Guys talk about the caloric value of several popular cocktails. On the high end: Pina Colada weighs in with 644 calories, Long Island Ice Tea a whopping 780 calories! Much more reasonable: Mohito at 160 calories or a watermelon martini at 125 calories.

The Guys welcome Launny Steffens, co-founder of Vineyard 7 & 8 Winery on Stone Mountain in Napa Valley. Decanter Magazine said of this winery "a new kind on the block has something different to offer". Launny and his partner, Steven Grover, feel that consistently the best wines from Napa are from the Mountain areas, which is why they choose Spring Mountain for the site of their vineyard and winery. The goal of Vineyard 7 & 8 has been to make the best possible California Cabernet Sauvignon from the Spring Mountain terroir.

The Restaurant Guys

Who Are The Restaurant Guys? Every week, Francis Schott and Mark Pascal host the Restaurant Guys, a show that's as informative as it is fun. Francis and Mark own Stage Left Restaurant in the heart of New Brunswick's theatre district, and, along with their expertise in a wide range of fine dining and wine matters, they bring to the table humor and intelligent conversation, perfect for the midday listener. The show includes discussions and interviews with famous chefs, restaurateurs, wine and food writers, critics; and the Guys even give stuff away occasionally.
