Why does mac and cheese get a pass from the 'don't put cheese on seafood' rule? Is it because Americans just blindly eat any mac and cheese you put in front of them?"

McDonald's is cutting 8 menu items, but we don't know what they are. They're also adding a build-your-own-burger option. All this as the company's profits continue to slide. Where is the Taco Doritos Locos of McDonald's??? (Hint: Probably not on a build your own menu.)

Lucky Duck in Silver Lake is closing after less than a year in business. (You can read our review of the restaurant here.)
