How on earth does Pine 22 win best of anything? I've been a handful of times and have come to the conclusion their food is just bland. Not good at all.

Are the rest of the categories ever coming out?

Yes. We got slammed this month and weren't able to get it out as early as normal. Thank you for your patience and I am sorry for the delay.
