The Blogroll

As I was making a couple of changes in the links to the left today, it occurred to me that I never had introduced them. Well, there's no time like the present to correct that oversight!

Members of the first group, Big Dogs, are probably familiar to you already. They're the major print publications that rate wines; they can be found online as well, some by subscription only, others for free.

I use the term Favorite Bitches in the nicest possible way. Bear in mind that "bitch" is the term for a female dog, and that dogs are nice. The women listed under this heading are smart, funny, have incredible wine knowledge, and offer free email newsletters that you probably wouldn't regret subscribing to.

Indianacentric are those links that connect you with — you guessed it — other Indiana-based sites. Emily and Christopher are a couple who have visited a goodly number of Indianapolis restaurants and written down their impressions; Feed Me/Drink Me is the must-read Indianapolis food blog written by a team headed up by BrainGirl; the Grapevine Cottage site is a wealth of recipes, wine reviews and articles from that Zionsville wine shop; Indy Ethnic Food is a user-driven site full of news and reviews of Indianapolis' ethnic restaurants, foods and festivals. The Curious City is a site put together by Indianapolis advertising agency Young and Laramore, and even though it's a bit outdated it still contains some good information; My Plate or Yours? is a Bloomington-based blog I just added today — the proprietor likes food and takes mouthwatering photos of it, visits Indiana restaurants that I've never heard of, and is a dog person; The Hungry Hoosier visits restaurants all over the state too, and shares his stories and recipes.

Urban Indy doesn't have much to do about food, but it is all about sensible urban development, and in my mind is worth keeping up with. The Indianapolis Blog Ring contains more than 40 blogs, some of which you may find interesting.

Go click some links, and happy reading!
