Tales From the City

Make it a double

A story about drinking wine at Logan.

While having a sandwich at a crowded lounge at Logan, a woman sat down at the next table and asked how we liked the wine we were drinking. I said it was very good and that it came in both 6- and 9-ounce sizes. When the woman’s harried husband arrived with their food, she relayed the information about the wine and the two sizes. “Great,” he replied. “I’ll have both!”
