Eat, Drink & Be Curious

I am psyched about this list, I have tried many of these things, but will be “forced” to do so again so that I can get credit for the Curiosity Crawl, there are several that have been on my to-try list for a while and still some that I had never heard of (or thought would make this list). I am looking forward to trying as many of these items as possible (I will be crossing them off as I do them).  Also I will be looking for co-tasters along the way. We all know, food is so much better when shared with friends/family.
