Tomorrow's Top 10 -- weekly dining deals

tylerI'm still looking at ways to establish this as a permanent fixture or widget, either on or off Dining at Large. This information is scattered elsewhere, both on and certainly on other web sites. I'm not trying to reinvent the Toast-R-Oven, but I am kind of liking how these deals look in simple list form.

Tomorrow's top 10 list will simply be what I think are the most appealing among these deals. I haven't tried them all -- I'm willing to be persuaded.
