Glutened By Dirty Wine Glass

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I'm out with friends at a soccer game having a really good time. They go to the snack stand and get their food, and I pull my baked potato out of my pocket and eat that. Worked out great and I am getting used to this kind of routine. Then, they suggest that we go by a nearby wine and pastry joint after the game. Why not? We get there and order and I am 2/3 of the way through a nice glass of white wine when I notice a bunch of those dishwasher crumbs stuck to the bottom of the inside of the glass. This place serves pastries and sandwiches, so I knew I was kidding myself if I thought that might be rice stuck to the glass. This all happened last night and today I have some gut pain but no d yet. Hopefully this will be one of those light cc reactions. Doesn't it just stink when you know you've been nailed and all you can do is wait and see what happens? What do you do when you go out and get something to drink? I have long given up on getting food out, but drinks can be a slippery slope too. You have waiters and bartenders with food and beer gluten all over thier hands making and serving your drinks. The dishwasher water is a pool of gluten. What do you do, bring your own glass?

That is just gross.. most upscale places would check the stemware!...When we are someplace where they bring coffee in the cups & don't fill at the table, I always ask please check the mug......I also hate when at cheaper places they serve food on Melanie dinnerware & it's all scratched up.. Gotta be hidden gluten crumbs in those scratches...

We are never100% safe anywhere.

Maybe you need to carry one of those liquor flasks. I've thought of that myself.

I don't think this is a big worry at all, as far as frequency of the worry about it happening. I have drunk many, many glasses of wine over 7 years at restaurants and have never gotten sick from a wine glass and yes, I am very, very sensitive for those of you who would ask such a question. Pastry places are always a gamble but I have never found anything other than wine in my glass so this place must not be very clean. It is gross to think they didn't check the stemware before pouring wine into it but I don't think this is something that happens often. To think we are "not 100% safe anywhere" applies to anyone who leaves their house everyday. Life is a risk!
