Estelle’s Opening Night, by the Numbers

Somewhere around the time you were cracking into magnum bottle of prosecco number two in the hot tub on Saturday night (or just catching up on last week’s Boardwalk Empire before dinner on the couch), Brian Poe’s new Southern haven, Estelle’s, opened. We went. And here’s the field data...
