For thousands of years humanity has learned many social graces and skills across the tabletop, be it through a meal, a game or a shared drink. For the past 35 years, that has begun to change as we watch electronic devices become our extra curricular activities, friends and family.
This blog is determined to prove we still need one another, maybe now more then ever.
