As you know, the west side of Wichita is a lawless wasteland where life is cheap and rough justice is dealt by bands of malfunctioning robot cowboy sheriffs who long ago escaped from Wild West World.

When the group gets together we're always trying new things — maybe it's a recent food recipe, a new wine find or a combination of the two for a great pairing.
