I keep forgetting to mention this app. Turn-by-turn nav, traffic alerts, cop sightings, and now gas stations. Awesome. http://lifehacker.com/5870122/the-best-turn+by+turn-navigation-app-for-iphone?tag=apps/navigation

Cantaloupe recalls keep local grocers on high alert |

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Recent recalls of cantaloupe tainted with listeria have urged grocers all over the nation to inspect their produ

above-average middle-eastern food at below-average prices. service can be hit-or-miss, but who cares when you can stuff yourself with baba and falafel for under ten bucks?

though loud and lacking in ambience, this busy bar makes some mean food. deep fried sausage; need any more be said? if only the atrocious service matched the bar set by the food and beer selection.

Though pioneering chef Shawn Monday has since left this basement location, it's still an exceptional spot for swanky, adventurous tapas-style dining. The basement location manages to be both hip and classic, with exposed brick and subdued lighting. The price is high, but the food and service match it.

Though the food is better than average, there are more authentic spots even in the suburbs. And it's hard to want to go out of your way to visit when the service is so surly and the prices so high.

around the corner from the craziness of w. 6th is this unassuming wine bar, which packs top-shelf eats -- and drinks -- into a space that's somehow both cozy and airy. by-the-glass options are organized into well-chosen flights, making it hard to stop with one. which is, of course, the point.

do not be misled into thinking this is just another beer joint. they have a great brew selection, to be sure, but it's the food that stands out as a consistently pleasant surprise. one warning, though: do not order a bloody mary unless you enjoy the feeling of having your face melted off.

Still the most consistently good Japanese experience in the city. Shuehei is far from flashy, but they deliver exceptional sushi (and other Japanese staples) in an understated space that would be right at home in San Francisco. The biggest drawback is the location: Yes, it really is in the basement of that office building.
