Disgusting. When's the human sacrifice?

The sacrificial ceremony starts promptly at midnight at the Noe Valley Ministry. Organizers of the event thought it best for attendees and participants alike to have first enjoyed the Uncorked Argentine wine event before, well, submitting completely to HIS eternal love and salvation.

Someone even mentioned the possibility that everyone sitting nave-side will be provided with a splash guard, just in case the action gets juicy enough once the Malbec has been flowing a while.

Incanto is way overpriced anyway, but this dinner sounds pretty disgusting.
