Dining@Large: the April Fools Edition
First of all, Bucky (who else?) has informed me that April 1 kicks off National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month. Gee, I wonder who came up with that idea?
I don't know. I could swallow, no pun intended, a National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, maybe even a National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Week, but a month? That's pushing it. Although we did do a Top 10 on grilled cheese sandwiches once.
If you plan to celebrate, though, please feel free to tell us about it.
On to more serious subjects. Here are a couple of good causes going on today: ...
I got this e-mail from Pigtown:
A friend and I have created a blogger action day... called "April Food Day" to bring awareness to the issue of hunger in America. You have such a large and varied readership, I was hoping that you could post [a] link to the April Food Day site. We're asking that people make a contribution to either their local food bank, or the national food bank, Feeding America. Maryland Food Bank is an affiliate of Feeding America.
Also I hear that today from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Sofi's Crepes next to the Charles Theatre will be offering either savory crepes or sweet crepes and a drink for $5. There will be live music as well. All the proceeds will go to Pet Rescue of Maryland.
Then, finally, a new Web sit launches today, the Dregs Report. It provides links to funny stories and blogs on various sites.
"A massive onslaught of wine comedy" is how the e-mail described it.
