    • A month’s worth of fat grams in a single meal! But seems calorie-worthy (at least at the time of consumption)
      It was delicious.

  5. The “slumped glass” you refer to is recycled wine, soft drink, and beer bottles flattened or bowl shaped. We sell these at 3G Gallery. They make fun holiday gifts and help support area artists.

    The food looks delicious, and I love the older gentleman driving the hot rod car. They are all great photos though. It looks like a fun-filled day.
