into so many interesting areas. Some of this weekâs offerings are robust,
flavorful fare that meet all minimum daily requirements. Others are
tantalizing tidbits that linger on the palette and stir a lot of
commentary. You could sit down to a fine dining experience, or tailgate to
your heartâs content.
