Really, the masterwork from one of my all-time favorite authors (although "Nights At the Circus" is a close second).

That's pretty nifty!
Thx +Google :)
 
A few weeks ago, we shared how you can see an interactive weather visualization on Google when searching on your mobile phone.  Now, a similar feature is available on tablets!  When you type [weather] into Google on your tablet, you'll see the current weather and you can scroll through the hourly and ten-day forecast. You can also toggle the Precipitation and Wind buttons to check out the percent chance of precipitation and wind direction/speed, respectively.

The wonderful Angela Carter (am rereading The Bloody Chamber now) in an interview with BOMB magazine from 1986 ... I like especially "dreams are a way of the mind telling itself stories"

Some of the most delicious (and sometimes peculiar) sandwiches around that go along with a variety of great homemade soups. Pretty good coffee too. The sun-room and patio are very pleasant during the summer.

That feeling when everything falls into place and you understand clearly the machinations behind life, the universe, and everything: 2012's song of the summer, "Call Me Maybe" was merely leading to this...Cookie Monster singing "Share It Maybe"

Besides having what amounts to one of the best burgers (topped with Boursin cheese, yum), the service was exceptional. Definitely a top recommendation in NYC

Top-notch pizza, and absolutely delicious garlic knots. The exceptionally friendly service made this a definite family favourite.

Not the greatest food, but the service was good with the wait-staff going the extra mile. Too bad the food wasn't value-for-money.

Really, seriously great coffee. Very good, freshly baked treats. Super friendly Rexers. I'll definitely keep coming.

Seriously tasty burgers (maybe the best in town) with nice sides. Though the prices have gone up, still worth it.
