Quick! When you were a kid what did you dream of being when you grew up? Maybe a police officer? Or an astronaut?

Ashley Thompson wanted to work for the CIA as a spy. It’s funny how your life can take a different turn as you grow older. That’s certainly true of today’s Across the Table guest.

Ashley recently sat down with Steve Sarbacker, a partner and attorney at Cutler Law Firm, at JJ’s Wine, Spirits, and Cigars. And his path to the bar–the attorney kind–had an interesting detour.

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.
