Bacchanal Buffet – Adventures in Whining

As an aside, when I go to the Seafood Buffet, I never eat anything that has walked on or grown out of the earth. Fins are my faves!

Christmas, Father Time, Caesar’s Buffet, and Fubar

CellarTracker Rocks!

Sometimes you just want to have a simple wine to pair with dinner. "Well now. What pairs well with bagged salad?" You get it.
