The theme of this issue is somewhat morbid. We'll admit to that. We were going to call it 99 Things to Eat in L.A. Before You Move to San Diego, but it didn't have the same ring of finality. You could probably drive up from San Diego if you were really, really in the mood for a maple-bacon biscuit but from beyond the grave? I'm afraid our metaphysics isn't quite up to that one.
And as long as we're on the subject of metaphysics, we will also confess to being a bit judgmental, because judgmental is what we do around here. If we're suggesting that some things -- 99 things -- are on this particular list, we're also suggesting that others are not. A Tito's taco: Eat before you die. A Pink's hot dog? You're on your own.
