Monday Morning Tidbits

Christmas Turkey Deadlines Fast Approaching: If you're thinking of a fresh, natural bird for the holidays, get your orders in now. Deadlines will be quickly approaching at markets such as Joe's Butcher Shop and The Goose. (On the other hand, Boo! to Joe for carrying and advertising Atkins Cheesecakes. Atkins is one business off my list permanently and I hope off many other people's lists as well.)


Death by Chocolate: Indychannel.com reports a worker was killed possibly while cleaning a machine at the South Bend Chocolate Company. No word on exactly how he died other than from trauma. South Bend health officials are investigating.

InTake Ceases Publication: From Ruth Holladay who seems to have an ear to all things Star, InTake will cease publication after this week's issue. Thursday's will be the last. They are folding some content into their site.

An Expensive Bottle of Scotch: New York City auction house Christies held the first rare wine and spirits auction Saturday since the beginning of prohibition over the weekend. New York state only lifted the ban on spirits auctions this year. No word on the wine, but the liquor was clearly the draw. Top selling lot was a 729 bottle lot of whiskeys which sold for $102,000. The top selling single bottle was a 1926 Macallan whiskey which sold for $54,000. Via SF Gate.

Always turn off the power before licking the beaters!

INtake is not dying. The publication is just being rebranded with the Indy.com name.

anon -- avid readers are probably aware that intakeweekly.com now points to indy.com. The point here is that the print INtake is going away.

Print intake didn't go away, it was just re-branded.
