Try the blondies, any one of their cookies, or the coconut-topped "magic bar." Yum! Skip the cupcakes, any boxed mix and can frosting from the supermarket is better. The cupcakes are about 2/3 frosting (where you can taste the granulated sugar) with a miniscule dry cupcake underneath.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
