Ironwood was the perfect oasis for four tired, thirsty and hungry golfers: the commodious restaurant offered spacious outdoor or indoor dining, the craft beer and wine lists were well-curated, and the farm-to-table (a very large herb/vegetable garden was less than 100' from our table) menu...More

Well, on Mother's Day, I pointed out to my wife a guy at the next table who was wearing a T shirt and shorts. I did not think it was appropriate, not on Mother's Day, but who am I?
