by in Community, September 7th, 2012

lobster rollsThe Daily Beast: This summer’s surplus of lobsters is driving down prices and re-branding the delicacy in a campaign to get people to eat more lobster. Lobster rolls for dinner anyone?

Mashable: What are the most innovative home appliances on the market? These three appliances could change your life.

The Salt: Boxed wine is getting a fashionable makeover. Vernissage’s “Bag-in-a-Bag” is making its way to the U.S. soon.

Eater: Forget pop-up restaurants — Muru Pops Down, a Finnish “pop-down” restaurant, is 262 feet underground. Don’t worry, helmets are not required while eating.

National Restaurant News: More and more chefs are reducing time and space requirements demanded by house-cured meats and are dishing out quick hams instead. Quick hams are generally brined or smoked, made with smaller cuts of pork and are still quite tasty.
