The Screaming Heads of Burk’s Falls

A few weeks ago,  saw something about the site Atlas Obscura, because they have a new book out. The site is basically what it says: An atlas of obscure, odd places all over the world. I checked out what odd places are close to me, as everyone probably does, and the one that stood out was

Food Startup Idea

I thought of what would be a good food startup: Instead of delivering me food from a restaurant menu, give me the option of sending a recipe that I found online, and have them make it, and then deliver it to me. I guess this is like having a personal chef, but one a one-off, on-demand basis.
