There was an interesting story on CBC News: Morning about a Toronto-based group called the Serial Diners. Their goal for the past 15 years has been to eat their way through all the restaurants in the phone book — from A to Z (or Zed, for the Canadians out there).
It’s a very interesting idea — I just wish I thought of it. If variety is the spice of life, they’re certainly zesty. At the same time, they apparently have never utilized back-up fast-food restaurant Harvey’s in case their restaurant doesn’t pan out (they’ve just gone to other restaurants).
I’d write more, but my computer crashed twice already trying to play a RealMedia link through an extremely outdated version of Mozilla.
