THE FACTS: Extracting oil from Canadian tar sands does require more energy -- and results in 17 percent more greenhouse gas emissions from oil well to tailpipe than a traditional barrel of oil refined in the U.S. But a March 2013 analysis by the State Department concluded that the tar sands are likely to be developed regardless of whether the pipeline is approved. About 45 percent came from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, which represents numerous countries in the Middle East. Copyright 2015 The Associated Press.

It's a treat to be reminded of the joys of rye whiskey with the Laurelvardier, made with vermouth, Campari, Cynar and those orange bitters. I'm not sure I've ever seen a cocktail made with Campari . The beers are many, but not that many. Should you want to keep it more simple, there are hot pretzels with yellow mustard, a chili and lime flavored Caesar salad, and a handful of burgers. The steak fries are cooked in duck fat and there are five different cheeses on the five burgers. After a couple of dishes, you just don't want to move.
