Wine Food Pairing - Off the HOOK with Capt Brien

Wine food pairing goes "off the hook" with Capt. Brien's on Marco Island.

Summer time in Florida means that you can always get a great seat at all the terrific eateries without a wait. What better place to go hang out than Capt. Brien's comedy club?

The cool "club" atmosphere was just perfect on a brutally hot humid Florida afternoon. James, our waiter, was terrific ... friendly, knowledgeable he made the afternoon a treat!

I went for the house pinot grigio, chilled and crisp it was the perfect compliment to my shrimp and avocado club sandwich.

BigAl decided on his standard fare of grilled chicken Caesar ... mmm ... crispy lettuce and a tangy dressing.

We were much too early for the entertainment ... Capt. Brien's is famous for his "off the hook" comedy club ... so we just had to keep ourselves entertained ... oh my!

A great afternoon with super wine and food ... two thumbs up for Capt. Brien.

Wine Food Pairing - Red is BEST!

A study has been concluded in Copenhagen and the results are out ... consuming red wine on a daily basis leads to a longer life! Even 3-5 glasses a day. YIPPEEEE!

This is my kind of study!
(CBS) This story was first published on Jan. 25, 2009. It was updated on May 21, 2009.

Eighteen years ago, 60 Minutes first examined the so-called French paradox, which suggested that the French - despite a high fat diet and high consumption of wine - had a remarkably low incidence of heart disease compared with Americans. Most researchers agreed that there was something in the wine that offered protection, and a few years later, even the highly cautious federal dietary guidelines say that moderate consumption of red wine can be beneficial.

As 60 Minutes reported in January, scientists across the country have identified a substance in red wine called resveratrol that they believe might do more than just protect the heart, but could in very high concentrations significantly extend life by preventing a number of age related illnesses.

If they're right, we all may soon be taking a pill that could give us an extra decade or two of healthy old age.
Wine food pairing ... here is to your health. CHEERS!
