Greatest Hits and What You Missed: Gary Larson, Kevin Sbraga, Le Bec-Fin and Cliff Lee

The most fun we had this week (in the office, anyway) was playing Caption This Photo. The best response we got (of many, many good ones), came from DS Nyce who came through with “I will have the Gary Larson special…” For those of you who don’t get the joke, dig this.

Still, it wasn’t all cow jokes and fun and games. We also re-capped both the Vendy Awards and the 2011 Cheesemonger Invitational. We (re)entered the debate about a possible opening for Hop Sing Laundromat, and brought you the first pictures (architectural renderings, actually) of Kevin Sbraga’s new restaurant.

Here’s some of the other stuff you might’ve missed:

Union Transfer Schedules An Opening And the crowd goes WILD
Happy Hour Rules Loosened Which just means that there’s going to be a lot more typos here
Notes From A Stroll Philadelphians know their restaurants. What they don’t know is when they’re being stalked.
Liquor Licenses Landed A bunch of new liquor licenses in town which, again, just means that there’s going to be a lot more typos here
Le Bec-Fin Stiffs Its Employees And that ain’t right for any number of reasons
Cliff Lee Turned Away At Serafina But that’s okay, he got a table at a.kitchen right across the street

    the happy hour law also apparently included a provision that you pay a fee to register 20 beers at once (a boon to nanobrewers and one offs at brewpubs) as well as expanded the number of places wineries culd sell their product. plus improperly registered beer will now remain at the bar itself rather than being seized.
