I was fortunate enough to be visiting after a conference in NYC.
Kathy made a nice chili, Diane provided a fine salad and Joyce bought the loon and some nice deserts.
That said all the vets and novices alike seem to agree that the Smoking Loon was a fine wine and suitable for a brief family gathering.
Though I still enjoyrd my beer I'd defenitely pick up a bottle if I find it at the local grocer.
Thanks Red for the recommendation and thank you to Kathy and family for the nice gathering....
