Top 10 weekly specials : My PowerPoint presentation

weeklyI took your suggestions for Top 10 weekly dining specials, threw in a few of mine, and sorted them by day of the week. I confirmed them all the best I could, by visiting the establishments web sites. When I found other weekly specials from the same establishment, I listed those, too. When I couldn't confirm, I said so. (Of course, send me links confirming the deals; restaurant owners and employees can confirm them simply by posting a response here)

Next step:

Confirm, correct, and add.  

And then:

We'll end up with a super, self-generated list of weekly specials. I'm talking with Margot and Timothy over in the Widgets about how to make this into a permanent feature

And then: 

You and I will collaborate on a Top 10 list for next Tuesday.

How does that sound?
