    @HumerusMeg I know you know but the cinnamon allergy will not be pleasant for anyone. 😁

    I'm allergic to shellfish, but I haven't yet heard of wine with that in it.

    There's usually lots of snacks involved, no shrimp this year...

    Crustaceans are a subset of shellfish, with the other subset being mollusks (clams, mussels, etc...).

    Also @HumerusMeg ... you already know, but for the sake of completeness; some non-dairy snacks would be much appreciated.

    Linc you just got scienced

    Yes. But he still meant mollusks, just like nearly everyone else who says they have a shellfish allergy.

    Lots of people are allergic to shrimp / lobster / general crustacean.

    I watched a guys face turn red, and get super itchy from shrimp once.

    That's what happens to me and also my throat if I ingest cinnamon. No bueno.
