The Morning Brew: Thursday, 9/6



This week's issue still isn't available online, so you'll have to pick up the dead-tree edition if you can't wait to read Drink of the Week, Keep It Down! or my review of Bistro Alexander.

Local grocery workers have agreed to a new three-year contract, so no strike or lockout at Schnucks, Dierbergs or Shop 'n Save. (Post-Dispatch)

A couple of updates on yesterday's news:

This guy says Mario Batali says he's still shooting episodes of Iron Chef America. So there. (Serious Eats)
