Organic food just became the ultimate battleground
Whole Foods co-CEO Walter Robb told CNBC’s Courtney Reagan that Wal-Mart’s presence in the organic space is an “affirmation that this organic food marketplace continues to grow. I think it’s a $225 billion marketplace by the end of 2018. We’re the leaders in that space and I think we’ll continue to be.”

Brunch is one of the best meals of the week. The reason I say week is because you probably only get brunch once a week, or maybe twice a week if you decide to dine out on both Saturday and Sunday. Brunch is that time when you sit back, order enough food for breakfast and lunch if you so please and take your time eating it because you have no where to be next. Sunday is usually that one day of the week when you make no future engagements, no plans. It’s the day to be leisurely.
One of Patrick Schaal’s favorite restaurants is Nico Osteria, a restaurant that offers Italian seafood. Nico Osteria is a classy restaurant that ever so perfectly embodies elegance. It brings rustic simplicity to Chicago. On the weekends, you can get a wonderful brunch consisting of Oysters, Alaskan king crab, chilled lobster, tripe alla Romana, porchetta autostrada, and pastas like spaghetti carbonara or taglionlini with clams. According to the Chicago Eater, Nico Osteria is ranked second as far as best brunches go but coming head of Nico Osteria as the number one is Fat Rice.
Fat Rice recently started offering brunch. This Asian/Asian Fusion restaurant that is normally frequented for nice dinners on Friday and Saturday nights or even great food and drinks after work during the weekday has expanded their horizons to serve brunch. Keep in mind you have to have at least three people in your party to sit at a table, not that sitting at the bar is uncomfortable. Sitting at the bar gives you the chance to watch the bartender do his tricks and it is definitely a sight to see. Apparently watching the drinks being made is almost as enjoyable as drinking the drinks themselves. Some mentions are the drink called Breakfast of Champions, the Macau pork chop sandwich, and Calimoxo, which is one of my favorites. Calimoxo is red wine mixed with Coca-Cola and a little bit of lemon. I can’t wait to try the Fat Rice for bunch myself!

June 12 marks the start of the 2014 Word Cup and day by day, it approaches. The first match will be Brazil against Croatia. Each day leading up to this amazing tournament brings changes and some of them are not good. Unfortunately Jay Rodriguez, 24, hurt his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee halfway through the first half in the Saints’ game against Manchester City. Rodriguez will be out of commission for six months to heal his knee, which means, regrettably, he will no longer get the change to play with the Southampton team in the 2014 World Cup.
Rodriguez scored 15 goals for Southampton this season, placing them in 8th place in the Premier League. Striker Rickie Lambert, left back Luke Shaw, and midfielder Adam Lallana all have a chance to make it to Brazil. Unfortunately Rodriguez will be hanging with Theo Walcott on the national team’s injured list.
Les Reed, the Southampton director comments on Jay’s disappointment about not getting the chance to play “but is determined to get back playing for the Saints as soon as possible… Jay has asked us to pass on his gratitude to everybody who has shown him their concern and sympathy during the 48 hours since his injury.” What a good sport!
