If wine is a staple, why do they rape us at restaurants? Dining out in the US really pisses me off when they give it to you without vaseline with the wine prices. Having been accustomed to wine being a staple in Europe, South America, etc; where you might pay a little more for wine at a restaurant and hearing that it is a staple here, is a little hard to bear. Wine is treated like a luxury in the US, hopefully people will make that change or just accept "getting it without vaseline" just like when they buy gasoline.
