Eating at Airports

Great list of places to eat the country’s most popular airports. I’m sort of surprised I’ve been to so few of them. The three picks that pop to mind for me (all in American Airlines terminals): Brooklyn Deli @ JFK (it’s nothing special, but they’ve got real eggs in the morning … which is way more than you can say for the rest of the restaurants in that terminal), Pappadeux’s in DFW (they have another Pappas restaurant listed for Dallas) and Pinkberry in SF (I only mention it because it’s over by the gates and I always forget it’s there and then get excited to have some before the flight).

A Floating Future

For as crazy as these drawings of raised and floating airports are, they sort of make me wonder if we imagine big things anymore. When’s the last time you saw a rendering or drawing of an imagined future (other than the next iPhone)? Sure we have the xPrize and that sort of thing, but what about just every day crazy imaginings and excitement? Where has that energy gone? I guess a lot of the same people who would have been drawing crazy pictures of floating airports 80 years ago probably make stuff on the web … But it doesn’t seem like that can be the whole answer.
