This Week in Gut Check, Regurgitated


  • Robin Wheeler
This week, Gut Check was obsessed with totally awesome -- or, at least, totally memorable -- commercials for stuff we have no interest whatsoever in eating.

Why? I don't know. A passing fancy, probably.

Or maybe we've been watching too much TV lately.

As always, it was a busy week around these parts: We had news from Five, Terrene and El Pollo Loco. The Noble Writ took another look at wine closures, while Java Enabled began a two-part look at sustainable coffee farming in Tanzania.

The Sneak extolled the virtues of the burrito, while Robin Wheeler gave us her usual one-two punch of kick-assitude: an edifice built out of Hormel's Treet, and a visit to the Fenton Bar & Grill. Stefani Pollack learned why Vito's cleared out halfway through her meal.

That's it for this week. Next Week: A flat-out fantastic brisket sandwich and much, much more.

Have a great weekend. Eat something good.
