Your End-of-Week Cocktail!

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 5, 2007 9:00PM

Here's something to cleanse your palate after checking out this afternoon's diversion. We were checking out the weblog of the Illinois Winemakers' Alliance and came across this YouTube clip from Alton Brown's "Feasting on Asphalt." In the clip, Brown visits Baxter's Vineyards in downstate Nauvoo, where he and owner Brenda Logan (whom we interviewed yesterday) proceed to get Brown's cameraman feeling good on some of Baxter's selections. The kid's just pounding them back, God bless him, even as Brown starts to annoy with the Wisconsin jokes.
