Those 134 additional cities mean that Postmates has a presence in 550 cities total across the U.S, including places like Lubbock, Texas; Athens, Georgia; Columbia, South Carolina and Albany, New York. In April, the company announced that it would partner with Walmart on grocery delivery. The move was meant to offset Amazon’s potential dominance in the space given the online retail giant’s acquisition of Whole Foods last year. […]

I’m just going to say it: I love pickles. As a kid, my mom had to stop me from drinking pickle juice straight from the jar. Cut to me doing picklebacks (a shot of whiskey chased by a shot of pickle brine) at the bar in my thirties. You get the picture.

Between mouthfuls of her pickled beets, tomato jam and homemade peach soda, Sofranko quickly dispelled the country-folk stereotype often […]

Baltimore loves its crab. The city is rightly known for delicious recipes using the iconic ‘Maryland crab,’ or blue crab, which made PETA’s attempts to get people to stop eating seafood quite a long shot, to say the least. The animal rights organisation posted a huge billboard in the city, urging people to see each crab as an individual with a personality and go vegan. The scientific name for the species, Callinectes sapidus, means ‘savory beautiful swimmers’ in English, which pretty much sums up just how long we have been craving the sweet meat of these abundant creatures. Did PETA […]
