    The Cutting Board AND Wright Brothers
    The meat cooked over a charcoal grill at The Cutting Board...there is a condiment bar to let you custom build your burgers

    Favorite Dish: Any thing I've had at The Cutting Board, especially the salad bar and the ribs at Wright Brothers

    We did do a little shopping...
    There was one cool store that sold cigars and tobacco products.
    JR Cigars

    New studies have shown that tobacco use has medical breakthroughs in brain disorders!
    There are many good uses for tobacco.
    This does NOT mean I think you should take up smoking or dipping! Check with your doctor, there are other methods of delivery.
    Please read this article and if you have a family member who has alzheimer's disease or any brain disorder, search the web for similar articles.

    Tantalizing Clues About Nicotine
    August 4, 1998
    Many studies have shown that nicotine improves cognition. That's a big reason why smokers smoke--they say it helps them think, reason, and concentrate.
    Several epidemiological surveys show that, as bad for health as it is, smoking reduces risk of Alzheimer's disease, according to James Pauly, of the College of Pharmacy at the University of Kentucky.
    Several autopsy studies have shown that compared with cognitively normal people, those with Alzheimer's disease have fewer nicotine receptors in their brain tissue.
    Currently, many researchers around the world are trying to create a nicotine-based drug to prevent and treat Alzheimer's. Others are trying to figure out why Alzheimer's destroys nicotine receptors in the brain. So far, they have not gotten very far, but at the University of Koln in Germany, researchers have discovered a correlation between degradation of nicotine receptors and tau protein, which has also been linked to Alzheimer's risk.
