Letters to the Editor

Chadwick Cox
In Bill Bishop’s Commentary (“Counterpoint: Paying the price”), he states a law change would “negatively impact selection and price, just as it’s done in Texas.”

Italian nights

Bellini’s Ristorante celebrates its 21st birthday by refocusing on what made it great: Italian wine and Italian food.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Italian reds, for the most part, aren’t meant to be sipped on the patio or enjoyed by a crackling fire. They’re made to complement food: hearty Italian food. Drinking them without the accompanying meal usually leads to two conclusions: tastes like a sour cherry, and too much acid.

Liquor store owner needs some cheese with his ‘whine’


Letters to the Editor

R. Cass
I must agree with Roy Williams (“Point: Revise outmoded liquor laws”) that discussions about such hot-button topics as expanding the sale of wine and beer into grocery stores are healthy to a free-market economy and should always be welcomed.

Cork and canvas

A new business combines classic paintings, art instruction and wine to create an evening of culture, learning and fun.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Most of us grow up with art of one sort or another. Rare is the refrigerator not graced with the crayon scrawls of a fearsome crimson or sky-blue beast that is actually just the family cat or dog. Scraps of bad poetry are stuffed under beds and in drawers, and doodles in spiral notebooks get tossed with the biology notes.
