On April 15, 2022, I made my debut as the cohost of Table for Two. Below is a three-month show recap of my guests and their show appearance on Joe’s Table for Two with me.
Well, the past few months have been pretty fun! In my post from April I announced my new role as cohost for Joe’s Table for Two, a talk radio show all about food, drink and travel. Table for Two is on NEWSTALK 1400 AM and 92.3 FM WOND.
Below is a recap of my guests and their show appearances.
In April I welcomed the new owner of the historic Inn of Sugar Hill, Wendy Fabietti, into the studio along with Israel “Izzy” Rodriguez. Izzy is the executive chef at the Inn of Sugar Hill’s two dining spots, Izzy’s River Landing and Izzy’s Steak and Seafood House. Wendy and Izzy were joined by master mixologist Megan Defalco to talk about the restaurant’s spring cocktail menu.

Table for Two
Undoubtedly, this experience has been incredible. In addition to all the fun in the studio, I have enjoyed the opportunity to chat with so many inspiring business owners in the food, drink, travel and hospitality sectors. As I look ahead, my future show lineups are just as great as the first three months. Be sure to follow along with me on my social media. I announce all show lineups there first.
Thank you for joining Table for Two!
