Another Out

We've all heard of the Great American Smoke Out, the day when people are encouraged to quit smoking. Some vegans are promoting a Great American Meat Out (it's Thursday). Unfortunately, it feeds (meatlessly) the stereotype that strict vegetarians have no sense of humor. "Smoke Out" was a pun, see?

Nevertheless, partly in honor of the Meat Out, we've got a vegetarian--though not vegan--Quick Fix menu on the back page of today's Food section.

Egg Sitement

The electronic Gourmet Guide (eGG) is hiding "digitally dyed Easter eGGs" in 75 sites all across America On-Line starting today. If in your surfing you find a heading that says you've found an egg (each looks like an individually designed Easter egg, modeled with three-dimensional effects), you can push a button to enter the contest. Electronic Gourmet Guide's AOL keyword is, of course, eGG.
