Java junkies rejoice. For those unwilling to fork out more than a buck for caffeine, 7-Eleven is selling coffee for only $1. The promotion is only on Wednesdays and lasts until the end of January.

That means any size cup and all the sugar, flavorings, topping and cream you can possibly want are included in that price. The promotion was put in place to celebrate the convenience store's new Brazilian Dark Roast, a premium blend coffee made from 100 percent Arabica beans from southwestern Brazil.

Other blends (also $1) include butter toffee, blueberry and 100% Colombian. 7-Eleven was actually the first U.S. retailer to offer fresh-brewed coffee in to-go cups back in the mid-1960s. Today, 7-Eleven sells more than 1 million cups of freshly brewed per day.

    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
