  • Restaurants:
    • Finally!  It’s safe to eat romaine lettuce again!  I was surprised at how hard it was to avoid romaine during those times I went to a restaurant for a salad.  Glad I don’t have to think about it anymore!
    • The Truffleist, known for their truffle cheesesteaks, now makes the most insane $32 burger.  It’s made with two patties, melted mozzarella, caramelized onions, cheese sauce, truffle mayo, fresh shaved truffles, and a ball of fried burrata on a prosciutto bun

Food for Thought

  • I usually don’t think I’m smart enough to read The New Yorker…and here’s a 9-year-old who’s killin it in the caption game for their iconic cartoons.
  • I love this reimagining of iconic male literary characters as female.
  • This proves why print shouldn’t die.
  • This infographic breaks down what it takes to write an award-winning book…perhaps I should take some of these trends to heart…

I always love when I hit my freebie on my coffee shop loyalty card

Bits & Bites

  • I love that travel agents (of sorts) are becoming popular again.  This time around, the process is app-based (vs. brick and mortar) and focused on local experiences.  I’ve been following Noken for a while and am now very intrigued by ViaHero.  Hopefully I’ll get to use one of these companies sometime soon for a vacay.
  • This article/interview about the Amish and their relationship with technology is super interesting.
