Beef.  You know the old saying.

Yum. And no, beef doesn’t have to be unhealthy.

When dining out on a special occasion, beef is a popular choice. Let’s sample a few local examples that would be great choices for a birthday or anniversary or big date.

The Dry Aged Buffalo Bone- In Ribeye from Mr. B’s shown with a salt- crusted baked potato and wild mushrooms.

Filet Mignon from the Packing House.

Sliced Filet Mignon with Cipollini Onions and Wild Mushrooms from the Capital Grille.

Prime Rib from Ward’s House of Prime.

Are you drooling yet?

With quality comes a beefy price.

But hold on.

Tomorrow’s hamburger may cost as much as today’s steak

Dear Jennifer, would love to take you out for one of your favorites, but I think we’ll have to do that as a combination Birthday-St.Patrick’s Day-Mardi Gras-Easter-Mother’s Day-Anniversary-Independence Day-Labor Day-Sweetest Day-Halloween extravaganza. I’ve made reservations for November 15.

Are grocery stores doomed?

What would you do for a Twix bar?

OK, I like hot, spicy food. However...
