Redskin potatoes?

Pittsburgh-style steak?

Seared on the outside, raw in the middle?

Not for me, I'd rather not hear my steak "moo" when I cut into it.

Wow! I wanted to go to Artful Gourmet tonight but my partner is suffering from end of week exhaustion. The specials sound awesome - but then again, I've never had a bad meal there!

oh, and Go Ravens!
