Cheryl and Robert Mauri. Foodies, diners, drinkers, and hedonists
extraordinaire. I am convinced that if I
can eat it, Robert can, or will try, to make it. I have never met someone quite like him, no
fears for cooking, baking, molecular gastronomy, etc. He’s a modern day Mikey (Remember Life cereal commercials?). Give it to Robert, he’ll make it, and he’ll
certainly eat it too.
Cheryl, his lovely wife is my kind of gal, shares an interest in one of my favorite pastimes, being a great diner. One of my last adventures
with them was a dinner they hosted where Robert paid homage to parts of the
animal others may be too scared to touch.

As for the penny exchange, we met at the Dray for a few
pints to talk food & beverage and life in general. I went home with a back pack FULL of
pennies. Can you imagine paying for a
pint of beer with pennies? LOL. We’d be banned from every establishment.
