Mini Road Trip, Anyone?
D.C.’s exploding food scene not enough to quench your appetite? Only in Your State has a fine listicle of restaurants throughout Maryland that any self-respecting Mid-Atlantic resident should make a point to eat at during the coming year. And yep, there are lots (and lots) of crabcakes. [OIYS]

It’s time for another meme brief.
