Eat at The Fly Trap
No, I'm not telling you to go eat a meal next to our top-selling pest control product.
The Fly Trap is a "finer diner" in Ferndale, Michigan.
A reviewer for the Detroit News says: "Don't be put off by the name. The Fly Trap is a tongue-in-cheek reference to a more modest predecessor that filled the space for 54 years before this snappy contemporary version of a diner came along."
We love that they've had fun with the name. They even sell a bottle of house-made habanero hot sauce called "Swat Sauce".
Eating bugs in Thailand
My friend Dan is on vacation in Thailand for six weeks. He has been raving about the food in e-mails. I don't know if he's in the northeastern part of the country, but according to this, you can't claim to have tried the local cuisine if you haven't tasted a bug of some sort. Perhaps he'll have occasion in his remaining time there to try some fried scorpions, grasshoppers or crickets.
