>On his new Travel Channel series The Layover (premiering Nov. 21), gastro adventurer Anthony Bourdain offers quick tours of major cities during stays of no more than 48 hours. (He usually doesn’t bother changing clothes.) He starts in Singapore, sampling dish after dish until, as he puts it, his stomach is “distended like a gaseous piñata.” (He also ducks into bars, but my mind stayed on the rice-and-chestnut sausage.) For all the running around, the show is a pick- me-up for anyone with travel or foodie dreams. []
