time for tourists or to be a tourist...

when you have these great books on hand, kind of makes you want to be a tourist.  only their second edition, these eat.shop books focus entirely on independently owned shops and eating establishments

we've got montreal too, with portland and san francisco coming. 
really, we need people like this, rooting for the underdogs in the world of big box shops
so, thank you kaie wellman for being so inspired to create these books. she's got a great story, so if you have a moment, here's the link: http://eatshopguides.com/about/
