  1. Let’s think about formatting and visual appeal for this page. The content is okay, but why do some of these have no link? Could you add small icons or something, or group them in categories somehow to make this work better visually? Do you know how to use Zemanta?

  2. Honestly, I through this one together rather pathetically. I need to link all the restaurants and I wanted to ad a visual but I have been crunched for time. No worries, I will make this page look much better than what it does now. I do know how to use Zemanta but like I said I was crunched and will spruce it up!
