Weekly Wrap

Francis Lam took a trip back in time with the McRib sandwich and Ulterior Epicure experienced the Roli Roti porchetta sandwich. Stephen Webber drank a Mich Ultra on election night. Jarrett Wrisley, an American restaurateur in Bangkok, dispatched with a  difficult employee; George Takei dispatched a douchebag. Kansas City was named one of the U.S.’ most surprising food cities. The grape harvest in Sonoma is being called the worst ever. If you’re treading on thin ice in a relationship, brace yourself – break-ups are most common right before the holidays. Anthony Bourdain offered an antidote to jetlag that really sucks and Chipotle will spin off an Asian-themed sister chain.

And finally, our sentence of the week comes from the April 16, 1945 issue of LIFE Magazine:

Stephens College in Columbia, MO., a progressive junior college for girls which is also part finishing school, has 2,060 students, a smart president, James Madison Wood, and the boast that 85% of its graduates get married within five years.

Set those sights high!
