Looking for website to view custom Google Map by tags

GoogleMapFilter: I'm looking for a Google Maps application/website that will allow me to create custom maps with location markers and then let me view those markers by tags.

I've been using Wayfaring, which allows me to create multiple custom maps, add location markers and tag those markers. But, it doesn't seem to let me view my own maps filtered by the tags. I can search by tag, but only to see other users' markers. I checked the Wayfaring forums and another user has suggested this functionality, but it has yet to be implemented.

Here's an example of what I want to do: make a custom map called "Food Map" in which I will create markers for various restaurants and food stores. Then I want to view my map by tags, e.g., show only those markers tagged as "Mexican" or "Mexican+new" or "grocery+organic", etc.

Anyone know of a website that would allow me to do this? Unfortunately, I don't have the skills or patience to create it myself with Google Maps' developer tools, so DIY solutions are out.

Response by poster: Thanks, silusGROK. I hadn't seen that before--it gets me about 95% of the way there.
