Rumors of a high school reunion had swirled around for many years, but it wasn’t until someone said “no spouses allowed” that plans for our 20th reunion finally came together. Although my wife mocked the concept (since I went to an all boys Catholic high school, she calls […]
Max’s Seafood Cafe has long been a favorite for our family. Their mussels are to die for and the beer list is awesome.

On the night of the 2nd Annual Kipling Road Whisky Fest, I was reminded by Miracle Max that I was 1/3 owner of a bottle of very rare and very expensive Single Malt Whisky (only 18,000 bottles were distributed and the average price is $120 for 750ml). Luckily, […]
