I must say, this has been a huge caloric week. It all started  Wednesday when we celebrated with friends at Uproot Restaurant in Warren.

Arriving just before 7 p.m., I was delighted to enter a comfortable fresh, and open environment with patrons enjoying drinks, dinner, and conversations at various tables throughout the dining room.
