Gifts for all occsions takes on a new meaning from the folks at Pushin' Daisies. They cater to the mortuary crowd and have some truly 'different' types of gifts. I wonder if our local morticians would enjoy one of their shirts: "Support Your Local Funeral Director: Drop Dead", nicely done in black (of course) with white lettering.

A few months ago, the last remaining Little Tavern closed, and along with it a sub-culture. Having lived in College Park at one point, which had its own "Club LT" on Route 1, I can attest to the popularity of the restaurant chain, even if I never could understand why. Maybe it was because the food served was cheap. Considering the names that locals gave to the various meals, it's hard to believe that the popularity stemmed from the taste. Regular burger were known as "death Balls", cheeseburgers were "Yellow Death" and the chili was "Red Death". While the College Park Club LT dd a fair business at night feeding the inebriated, it also had a steady morning trade catering to the local business people in search of coffee. At one point, I knew the easiest way to find my profs was to drop by the LT in the morning (or the Gardens at night).
