The Week's Best

THE WEEK'S BEST

July 22, 2004

Arts

A national touring exhibition celebrating the 100th birthday of Dr. Seuss makes a stop at Atlantis Gallery in Ocean City, featuring many of his non-children's-book works, page 13.

Trips

Manayunk, Pa., just a short hop from Philadelphia, offers quaint shops and restaurants, as well as easy access to the Manayunk Towpath, part of the Philadelphia-Valley Forge Bikeway, page 22.

Eats

Taco Fiesta is so good and efficient on so many counts -- expert food preparation, colorful decor and sunny service among them -- that it seems it must be part of a chain. But the Inner Harbor location is the only one for this tasty Mexican restaurant, page 14.

Stage

Boisterous Jennifer Dundas, recently seen on Broadway and in the films Changing Lanes and Swimming, plays against type as painfully shy Laura in the Kennedy Center's production of The Glass Menagerie, page 12.

Scene

McDonald's Sessions at Merriweather brings big names to the venue for affordable prices ($10 in advance and $15 day of, including parking fees). Scheduled acts include Big Boi (above) of OutKast, Cake and Twista, page 25.
