Noshing on the News: Beef Jerky Business Cards, KFC’s Disaster, Dining in the Dark

by Kelsey
Your big bite of news for the week:
  • We heard through the grapevine (see: Daily Dish) that there is a tasty new way to approach meet-and-greets: Beef Jerky Business Cards, printed with your name and information via laser beam. Tech Crunch
  • The Foundation Fighting Blindness is taking their benefit to a whole new level with their “Dining in the Dark” event which comes to LA tonight at 6pm at the Beverly Hills Hotel. For a $300 ticket, diners are served dinner completely in the dark by blind servers in order to achieve the sensory experience of being blind. Foundation Fighting Blindness
Special Note: Frugal Nosh is attending the “Dining in the Dark” event tonight for the Los Angeles Times. Stay tuned for updates of the experience.
  • A new happy hour to look forward to: Thursday Happy Hour at Peninsula Beverly Hills Roof Garden, from 5pm-7pm through Labor Day. All cocktails, wines by the glass and beers are half off, and valet parking is complimentary. This 5-star hotel restaurant with city views and a beautiful Mediterranean oasis setting is not one you want to miss. Food GPS
  • Pocket Change aims to find the finest services and food of LA and New York City: this week’s LA special is the Best BBQ of LA, which includes Best Baby Back Ribs, Best BBQ Dessert, and the Best Hidden BBQ (which is a secret worth finding out about). Pocket Change
  • KFC is yet another victim of the fast food disasters this year, as their free grilled chicken promotion went terribly wrong with stores not honoring the coupons, long waits, and chicken outages. What could be worse is the damage to the credibility of Oprah, who claimed to be backing corporate for the costs of the giveaways. Consumerist
