Wanda is awesome, seeing her do comedy at this stage of her career was a privilege considering her recent TV shows and movie appearances. It was a LOT of content from her latest HBO special, about 50% new stuff at most. I think seeing artists like Kathy Griffin have spoiled me a bit cause she's always adding new stuff, Wanda is a bit more conservative with her material it seems. I think her bar is higher for failure though due to all her recent successes.
The winery was a GORGEOUS venue, I think without Goldstar priced tickets, I'd have been a little annoyed though. I avoided buying ANY food or drink due to their quite horrific prices. I read through the yelp reviews of the site which REALLy helped me be prepared for the challenging parking, high prices and need for layers as the sun set.

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...continued
