How does a doctor who trained in Nigeria, wind up leading the Sioux Falls City Health Department during the middle of a pandemic?

We’ll let Dr. Charles Chima give you the answer in this week’s Across The Table segment.

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 drink 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
