Bite and Booze: First Post
Top o' the morning friendly readers. Well, actually it is late at night. This being the first post, I thought I should give a little explanation about what I'm doing here. The purpose of this blog is to chronicle the many adventures that I have with food and drink. It will hopefully serve at least two purposes. First, it will be an excellent way for me to keep up with, and remember, all the meals and beverages that I consume over time. This will be good for recommending places to eat, thinking about what to cook, and recalling good times spent with good friends around a table or bar. Secondly, it is meant to be a source for the readers to use to get ideas of their own. Looking for a review on a restaurant? Maybe I've been there... and I'll at least tell you what I thought about what I ate. Most of the culinary and indulgent experiences will come from home, which is Baton Rouge, La. However, I am a man of travel. I have been to over 40 of the 50 states, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, and The Netherlands, with hopefully many, many more locations all around the world to come. I hope you enjoy the blog. Come hungry, start off with a drink to whet your palate, and when you wake up the next day and try to wipe something off your face, don't be surprised if it is the floor!
