Is it because of the warm weather? I dunno. Anyway, something I've been meaning to post for awhile--the best restaurant guide ever. This is how it's done (PDF). It's a bit dated now, so don't go expecting all the restaurants to still be there, but since it's a Hyde Park restaurant guide, not much has changed over fiveish years. I didn't write any of it (honors go to regular commenter ptb), I just designed it. "Gives a taste of the French-Arcadian totipotent cuisine with none of the usual flak. Extremely ambient, in a value-neutral sense." While I'm bragging, this (PDF) is the only design I've ever done that I've liked for an extended period after I did it. Classical references + 8-bit video game graphics = !
