etruscan? a lost ancient civilization that once encompassed much of the tuscany region of italy, etruria was a prehistoric culture dating as far back as 800 BC.  leaving behind no traces of literature or religious texts, all we can gather from this ancient civilization is the tapas-styled fare of jimgermanbar, situated in the outskirts of walla walla wine country.  i trekked here alongside a group of thanksgiving orphans, and i must say, the experience did not disappoint.  the 18 ft table in their private dining room was enough to impress, but filled full of antipasto, tortilla de espana, salads, schnitzel and glasses upon glasses of amaro-based bevande, it was a thanksgiving feast fit for etrusci and seattlites alike.
