Hot Dish

The words "happy hour" bring to my admittedly middle-age mind a loud vision of elbow-to-elbow gatherings around chafing dishes of Mexican food, with too many cheap drinks leading to a blurry evening. How nice to instead perch on a barstool at Pinot's in the early evening, sipping a glass of wine from the eclectic selection posted on the blackboard that day. A time to chat, a time to separate from the day's pace, maybe even a time to be quiet.
