LOS GATOS—David Kinch is teaming up with Vinography's Alder Yarrow for a $325 massive September feast at Manresa called The Sake Dinner: "The nuts and bolts of the dinner: a special 8-course feast that will likely feature some heavenly raw fish in ways that only Chef Kinch can do it, coupled with 8 or more phenomenally good and interesting sakes from among my favorites in the entire world."

THE INTERNETS—After two years on the market, it seems Daily Candy has finally been bought for the cool sum of $125 million by Comcast. No word on how this will affect your ability to find "crazy peach bevvies!" in San Francisco. [WSJ]

PORTLAND—A New York City man who was accused of killing a man in Oregon agreed to plead guilty to murder if the court would give him food in return: "The judge agreed and granted Durham a feast of KFC chicken, Popeye's chicken, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, carrot cake and ice cream. After Wednesday's sentencing, Durham was to get the rest of the deal -- calzones, lasagna, pizza and ice cream, his defense attorney confirmed. They will pay the tab." [CNN via Eater]
