EaterWire: Commis Updates, Winery Dream Job Winner

WINE COUNTRY—Murphy-Goode's brilliant dream job contest is over, and the winner is one Hardy Wallace from Atlanta, who enjoys Viking helmets and has apparently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in a bumblebee suit (sidenote: huh?). He starts at the Sonoma winery in August. [Cellarist]

OAKLAND—It's been about three weeks since Commis made its debut, so time for a quick update from James Syhabout's Oakland standout. The website is fully unveiled and the pricetag has been bumped up ten bucks to $59. [EaterWire]

THE EMBARCADERO—The final dinner of CUESA's "Moveable Feast" series will be on August 5th 4th and cooking for the al fresco event are Chris Cosentino and Americano's Paul Arenstam. Perhaps best of all is the setting for the four-course meal: the very picturesque Americano patio. Tickets/info here. [EaterWire]

PRINT MEDIA—Magazines are obviously hurting, and now that the ad numbers are out, September is looking pretty bleak for Conde Nast on the whole, including its food vehicles Gourmet and Bon Appetit. [Media Memo via Gawker]

LONDON—Mad scientists in England have created a weather-manipulating truck that is supposed to make ice cream flavored snow. [EMD]
