Somehow the lords of Chow need to find a way to PROMPT people who start threads here to include the location of the places they're discussing. "New chef at Harry's?" just doesn't cut it in a board that's stretching over such a wide range.
C'mon, Chow Lords: if you can't break our area into appropriate sections (doesn't Portland YET deserve its own?), at least you can come up with a way to let us know if a thread references Providence or Presque Isle.
