The Frederick Gorilla, a new local magazine, has started to post some of their articles online. Like this one about secret reviews of local eateries:
As a self-proclaimed recovering restaurateur I decided it wasn’t okay to have restaurants pay the Gorilla to give them glowing reviews. I think that’s crap, actually. It insults the customer/reader and doesn’t do any good for the restaurateurs who truly want to improve their restaurants.
So, I devised the SECRET GORILLA project. I sent four people to two, randomly selected restaurants in Frederick County, armed with specific review criteria and a score card.
I found the magazine as a whole to be really good, and I’m eagerly awaiting the next issue. If your interested, you can subscribe for free online.
