Tonight at 9|8c, Andrew Zimmern goes crabbing and fishing for eels on the Chesapeake Bay. On land, he visits Baltimore’s historic Lexington Market that’s reported to have some of the best crab cakes in Maryland. But what Andrew is really searching for here is Mary Mervis Deli to sample their famous beef tongue sandwich. While in Baltimore, Andrew also discovers that the city is home to a large Korean immigrant population, and he finds some of the most authentic Korean foods at Lotte Plaza Grocery.

Last night on Bizarre Foods America, Andrew Zimmern traveled to the Hawkeye State. From the moment he landed, he was elbow-deep in pork! First he visited La Quercia, an Italian-inspired artisanal meat producer. Next, he traveled to Rustik Rooster Farm, where farmers have perfected the art cross-breeding (and then slow-roasting!) some of the most delicious pigs in America. Andrew’s trip to Iowa was one for the books — relive moments from his pork-filled journey, watch episode highlights and see behind-the-scenes photos. Then, be sure to tune in next Monday at 9|8c, when Andrew visits Alaska!

The 1,250-cabin ship has a water coaster on the top deck and virtual portholes in every inside cabin that display a constant video feed of the outside view. You heard it here first, folks. Disney is trying to “imagineer” our minds.
Carnival just announced that its 2,124-passenger Carnival Spirit will be based in Sydney, Australia, starting in October 2012. It will offer 8- to 13-day trips to the Pacific Islands and New Zealand. There’s just one small problem, the ship can’t fit under the Sydney Harbor Bridge, so passengers will need to voyage from the Circular Quay’s Passenger Terminal.
