Friends of mine were in town to play the Tractor Tavern on Ballard Avenue. Walking to my car after the show I spied this scene inside a bar. I hadn't noticed this place before so perhaps it is new. It is called DiVino. Am I the only one who has noticed that within the last couple years a serving of wine by the glass has grown noticeably smaller no matter what establishment one might be in? It's like everybody suddenly got uniformly stingy. Perhaps the restaurant industry has generally adopted exact portioning. Such a practice certainly might increase the profit per bottle, or keep patrons from imbibing too much before driving. Certainly less calories and encouragement to really savor the wine!
