Google Reader on a Saturday afternoon

googleMy Google Reader feeds me updates from the various food blogs I follow. Most of these blogs are listed in the blogroll, which you can find on this page at right.

(Modifying the blogroll, even simply alphabetizing it, turns out to be absurdly non-intuitive and cumbersome.)

Also in my Google Reader, a few blogs that aren't food related. One of them, Daily Cognition, is a good resource for quirky and unusual news (although some of it quite dated.)

Anyway, today on Daily Cognition, a story about unusual sculpture gardens, originally published on the Woman's Day site.

One of the gardens is right here in Maryland.

I've never heard of the Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Art Center down in Dowell, Calvert County, but it looks like a great place to take the kids.

Turns out Susan Reimer did a Travel piece about the gardens last summer, before I was here full time and made it a point of reading every syllable in the Baltimore Sun.

Now I want to do a Calvert County trip -- any good restaurants down there?

Epicurious made me look at this post on Moscow's Best Restaurants. About a theatrical restaurant named, appropriately enough, Turnadot, Colleen Clark says, "Liberace himself would have blushed at the gilded frippery dripping from every frescoed eve of this multimillion-dollar dining room.

Eater reposted a funny piece from SF Gate about a San Francisco restaurant that is diners 50% off if they sit a the very worst table in the house.
