The Heinz ketchup truck (yeah, we didn’t know there was one either) is in town for the next few days giving out free fries. Intern Meredith has the scoop:
In an unofficial survey of my Facebook friends, 100 percent of them claim to prefer Heinz ketchup. Lucky for them, the Heinz truck is stopping through Dallas this weekend, its final stop in a four-city Ketchup Road Trip that kicked off in Heinz’ hometown, Pittsburgh. The truck stopped in the Arts District yesterday afternoon, handing out packets of their new Dip & Squeeze Ketchup with a side of Ore-Ida’s crinkle-cut or sweet potato fries (or was it the other way around?). Also up for grabs? T-shirts and free buttons to establish yourself as either a “dipper” or a “squeezer.”
I, myself, am a squeezer.

I thought about this post a lot yesterday as I lay in bed for 17 hours with the blinds drawn and a cool, dark pillow over my head. I could see it all so clearly: by hook or by crook, Schlabs and Quenette (respectively, the Meddlesome Moth’s co-owner and cicerone) are bound and determined to do me in with their Satan-in-a-Sunday-hat charm and invitations to rare beer tastings.
Exhibit A: Wednesday’s once-in-a-lifetime Saint Arnold Vintage Divine Reserve tasting — nine beers paired course by course with seared jumbo sea scallops, Scotch eggs, and individual pumpkin pies — co-conceived by special guest Saint Arnold owner/brewmaster Brock Wagner and the Moth’s Chef Chad Kelley.
It’s really best if I let the menu — which, it must be noted, would have sucked the restraint out of Norman Vincent Peale — speak for itself:

We love a freebie, and this one’s a no-brainer. The Uptown location of Urban Taco is so jazzed about being named one of D’s best new restaurants, that they want to pay it forward by treating anyone bringing in a December 2010 issue of D Magazine to a free Apple Cider Spiked Punch or a Hot Cocoa-Quilla every Tuesday throughout the month of December.
(Uptown location only. Actual drink may or may not look like the picture above.)
According to Dr. Patrick McGovern, wine may date back as far as 8500 BC. McGovern knows his stuff. He is the director of the Biomolecular Archaeology Laboratory for Cuisine, Fermented Beverages, and Health at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Last night he gave an interesting lecture to the public at the Dallas Museum of Art. The lecture was part of the The Boshell Family Lecture Series on Archaeology and, in the space of an hour, saw Dr. McGovern cover almost two millennia of the archaeological evidence of wine and its place in society.
