|Garlic bread, buffalo wings, sausage and peppers, pepperoni pizza, mushroom and chicken pizza|
Plate one. I grab for the first thing I see, which was the garlic bread. I was hoping for a nice crusty bread saturated with butter and garlic but instead it was overly toasted and dense. Roughing up roof of my mouth and hard to chew, I finished the rest of the bread just off of principle. Being close to football season, and the fact that we will actually have a football season, I was craving for a tailgating classic: queue the buffalo wings. They were fried nicely and tossed with a mild buffalo sauce. On my way to the wings, I saw a couple of individuals spoon sausages and peppers on their plates. Decent taste, but left a bit of grease on the palate. I skipped the pasta to arrive at what I was really looking forward to, the pizza. With limited space on my plate I went with the freshest looking pies, the pepperoni and a mushroom and chicken pizza. I bit into the slice of pepperoni and immediately realized that pizza had been out much too long under heat lamps as the crust was stiff. Along with the unpleasant crust, their red sauce packed a salty punch. The mushroom and chicken pizza helped redeem the mediocre plate. Still at a ripe freshness, the crust still had flakiness. There was a creamy alfredo instead of a salty red sauce. And both the chicken and mushrooms were tender and flavorful.

The best part of the meal came at the end where the three of us sat and talked for two hours while the waitress kindly checked in on us despite the fact we had long but finished our meals. And no matter what you are recovering from on your Sunday, that's a good way to spend it.
