10 Things your Restaurant won't tell you. How can you tell a good special from a bad one? Watch out for "an expensive item used in a way that's minimizing its flavor," Zagor says, such as a lamb chop that's been cut, braised and put into a dish where it's a supporting player.

Curious George - One of my favorite bookmarks is the Chicago police prostitution patron arrest photos - I usually check it once a week. The mugshots crack me up. Last week I look at the site...What... Hey! I know that guy!... Yep, one of the guys busted for solicitation.... I know him. The thing is... he's a regular customer of mine. Once a week he stops by the shop and buys some antiques. I have yet to see him since I found his pic on the site. The question is... Do I say anything to him about it? He just called me and said he's coming in this wednesday. I'm know going to have a hard time keeping a straight face when he walks in the door.
