There are certain names that are embedded deep in South Dakota’s history, whether it’s the name of a pioneer, an outlaw or a lawmaker who has helped the state grow and evolve. Our guest in today’s Across the Table, has one of those names that carries a rich legacy in South Dakota. David Mickelson’s father and grandfather both served as governors in the state. He hasn’t followed in their footsteps, yet when we sat down with him recently at JJ’s Wine, Spirits & Cigars it didn’t take long to see his love for his home state.

At JJ’s they like to say they provide “an enhanced adult beverage experience” and we think that’s just perfect to sum up the great food and drinks and the great people you’ll run into at JJ’s Wine, Spirits and Cigars. They’re located at 3000 west 57th Street in Sioux Falls. You can find out more about their specials and events, but checking out their website at
