Wanda was great. If you loved her HBO special. then go see her tour... it was basically the same thing (for better or worse). The Mountain Winery was really quite an amazing venue and Goldstar hooked us up with close seats in the second tier, so it really made the difference. Go figure that someone from the right wing didn't like her comedy and clearly didn't know what he was getting himself into.

This is a great venue - I suggest going online and purchasing a dinner package, too. The food and service were wonderful. The seats we got were great - they were in the back but dead center and not obstructed at all. Wanda Sykes was a BLAST!
