I have several regular features on my blog, each tied to a specific day of the week. Though each feature might not get posted every week, they are still posted quite frequently.
Mondays often seem the most difficult day of the week and I hear more complaints from people about Monday than any other day of the week. I too sometimes dread Mondays, especially after a particularly fun and relaxing weekend. So, maybe Mondays are the best day for a rant. There are issues about food, wine and spirits which sometimes irritate me, which irk me with their inanity. I get upset when sound bites are promoted over logic and analysis. Sometimes I get annoyed by rampant ignorance. Someone needs to step forward to speak out about those matters, to oppose these problems. And I am going to try to do just that, every Monday. Please join the discussion by commenting on my rants. .
Thursday Sips & Nibbles:
In this column, I briefly mention some interesting food & wine items that I have encountered recently. Generally, these items will be too brief for their own article, but are worthy of mentioning. They might include updates on previous items and places I have reviewed or news about upcoming restaurants, wine stores, and food/wine events. Each edition will usually contain 3-5 items of interest.
