    You know that Lilly’s is a great place to find fantastic food. After all, it’s been around since 1988 and Chef/Owner Kathy Cary, who has been recognized far and wide for her skills, never fails to provide satisfying American/Southern cuisine. She’s cool beyond cool, and this Thursday, January 24th, the crew at Lilly’s Bistro is hosting a 5-course Argentina wine dinner at 6:30 PM!
