1. Best Baguette on 82nd and Division - The only place I know of where you can get a foot long sandwich on fresh, crisp French bread for as little as $2.25. My favorite so far is the grilled pork marinated in lemongrass-soy dressing, served with pickled carot and daikon, jalapeno, cilantro, mayonnaise and soy sauce.
2. Sabrina Ward Harrison's book Spilling Open: The Art of Becoming Yourself - A combination personal/art journal filled with all the things we worry about when we're 18-21 (and later in life). Harrison's journal offers a voyeuristic look into the sorts of anxieties we all thing are unique to us when we are young, reminding that doubts, fears, days of shaky self-esteem are just a part of the human condition. The only difference with this girl (who somehow manages to seem both innocent and wise beyond her years) is that she managed to turn her angst into art. It's an inspiring read for anyone who journals or is drawn toward creative expression.
3. LIFE A Journey Through Time - A collaborative project featuring Frans Lanting's gorgeous nature photography, LIFE A Journey Through Time offers a visual history of life on earth.
4. Kris Waldherr's collection of famous love stories at her Museum of Love website. The website also allows you to tour her virtual museum and get free online tarot readings from her Lover's Path deck.
5. All you ever wanted to know about 15th century headgear, complete with instructions for making your own, because you never know when you might need a butterfly henin.
