Howard Country has its own Restaurant Week
Most of the restaurants you'd want to go to in Howard County are participating: the ever popular Clyde's, Tersiguel's, Kings Contrivance, Aida Bistro, Cafe de Paris, Iron Bridge Wine Company, and a lot more that you'll find on the official Web site.
It's the format we've gotten used to in Baltimore city: a three-course lunch for $20.08 and a three-course dinner for $30.08. Restaurant Week gives people a chance to sample a restaurant they might not otherwise visit. ...
I don't know why these random things strike me when I'm trying to be serious and reportery. But I wonder how the price-that-reflects-the-date thing ever got started.
Isn't it silly to make the prices $20.08 and $30.08 (which Baltimore Restaurant Week restaurants do as well) just because it's 2008? At least that's why I assume they end in an "8." Last year the prices ended in "7"s.
