storms knock down trees, and it's not only scary looking, it's really dangerous.]
Let's do a little roundup of my favorite late-July links as we ring in the new month. I love new months. Sure, rent is due, but this August my cousin is getting married on the first day of the month! And as the last month of the Jewish year, yiiiikes the High Holy Days are right around the corner.
State Dinner's Taste of Northern Michigan has a spectacular burger that we thankfully heard more about. I don't know when I'll go to Michigan...ever...but if I do, I need to make a sort of pilgrimage for that burger.
Love this map with descriptions of NoVa neighborhoods and the restaurants that live there, from DCLovesfood.
You want hot curry? Well, read about someone eating it over at I Flip For Food, and then check out this picture of someone MAKING it with a gas mask on, from the WSJ Photo Journal. Love that photo. Speaking of photos, check out the burgermobile on the Kansas City stretch of Scout NY's road trip.
Another NJ strip mall gem from eNJoyNJ!
I'm also happy to report that Google Analytics is back up and running, providing the following fodder--these are some keywords people used to find iEatDC via search engine:
* i basically made love to that duck, to be honest witchu
* pistachio and funion pizza
* where can i get pickles in a barral [sic] in vineland
* injera kosher for passover [STILL?!?!?!]
* patrick o'connell plaid jacket
*AND no fewer than FORTY-EIGHT different searches leading to the blog related to the Pea Puree Debacle. One person actually just typed "pea puree debacle." Others were genuinely and earnestly seeking answers. "did alex on top chef really steal ed's pea puree?" "did the other chefs on top chef know that alex stole the pea puree for hi winning dish?"
Hope you had a wonderful July but have an even better August! And what in the world is the August shake of the month at BGR???
