Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 12/6
Ratty: Beef Tacos, Mexican Style Rice, Chicken Fajitas, Curried Lentil Pancakes, Brownies
V-Dub: Grits Soufflé, Cauliflower Au Gratin, Black Bean and Corn Stew, Brownies
Advantage: Ratty. We aren't sure what a grits soufflé is, but it doesn't matter. Taco Tuesday takes the W easy.
Ratty: Au Gratin Potatoes, Calypso Roasted Pork Loins, Three Bean Lasagna, Pumpkin Pie
V-Dub: Thai Basil Pork Stir Fry, Rotisserie Style Chicken, Creamy Rosemary Polenta, Pumpkin Pie
Advantage: Tie. Everything except the pumpkin pie is irrelevant, and you can get that at either eatery. Thanksgiving never ends.
