What else has been happening on the web this week? Time for a weekend link round-up!
 Lightning Round: Food Trucks Reach Critical Mass
  • Could we be approaching food truck critical mass? At least in some cities, all signs may be pointing to “yes” as food truck veterans turn their attention to setting up brick-and-mortar shops. This great Grubstreet piece profiles some of the hardships food truck owners are facing. ~ Grubstreet NYC
  • Beer cans are still so hot right now, and HuffPo has posted a short list of canned beers perfect for summer. We approve. ~ Huffington Post
  • Gold leaf? Okay. Lobster thermidor? Whatever. But maybe no spider, scorpion, and snake venom on our pizzas, thanks. Apparently Swiss health officials agree on that point. ~ Gawker
  • We’ve never wanted to visit the Waldorf-Astoria so badly as when we heard that they keep an apiary on the hotel roof with thousands of bees to create their own locally sourced honey. We are swooning. ~ Yahoo Business
  • Los Angeles cartoon-inspiring food truck Grill ‘Em All has apparently gotten even more esoteric with a deep-fried Funyun-encrusted lasagna burger. We can’t wait to try it. ~ Foodbeast
  • Considering that you can buy practically everything else you could ever need from IKEA (yes including food, provided you’re content to eat nothing but meatballs and lingonberries for the rest of your life), it only makes sense that you should be able to buy beer there, too. Good on you, UK. ~ The Daily Meal
  • An aging danger rears its ugly head once again: CDC experts are examining the possible connection between the January death of a 75-year-old man in Montana and last year’s Listeria outbreak from Colorado-based cantaloupe. ~ Food Safety News
  • You can never have too much information or critical analysis of the Farm Bill. Here Marion Nestle weighs in. ~ Food Politics
