Get there early: This morning, SFoodie's Tamara Palmer reported on Fox Searchlight's plan to hype a movie by sponsoring street-food giveaways this Sunday, including sweets from (suspected) unlicensed vendor the Crème Brûlée Guy. Mission Mission couldn't help positing the worst: I can only hope Fox pays Crème Brûlée's fine when the cops shut this down. When we raised that possibility with publicist Shelley Spicer this morning, she pleaded dumb. As far as she knew, she told us, Crème Brûlée is all good with the authorities. Glad she cleared that up.
Chinese restaurant haiku: You gotta love Twitter, if only for its power to distil special moments. Take this tweet from Hot Food Porn: The waitress's ringtone at shanghai house is toxic by britney... Hahaha, she looks 40 and doesn't speak great english, I'm surprised... Nice weekend, everybody.
