  • Tortilla Chip Lager by Taco Works and Tio Rodrigo

Taco Works & Tio Rodrigo are teaming up for the ultimate “homegating” experience. While most of us won’t be joining the tailgate at Raymond James Stadium or even making the trek to our local sports bars, millions of Americans will be flooding stores, stocking fridges and settling in for some “homegating” to finish up football season during the Super Bowl at February 7. California chip company Taco Works and Tio Rodrigo Craft Beer Micheladas are spicing up this year’s Game Day experience with the world’s first Tortilla Chip Lager. The two small businesses are cracking into a new homegating tradition by combining the greatest party staples in history.

Let’s hope we will be celebrating our soccer ‘European Championship’ this summer! If possible in the stadiums but if ‘homegating’ is our only option, it will even bring a lot of positive excitement. This article is inspiration for all beer brands, start thinking on what you can bring to our homes to complete the joy of watching a great game!

  • The 'Nothing But Stuffed Crust' by Pizza Hut
  • The Original Stuffed Crust' by Pizza Hut

To celebrates 25 Years of its iconic, can’t-be-duplicated, original stuffed crust® Pizza, Pizza Hut created the limited-edition ‘Nothing But Stuffed Crust’.  In honor of the ORIGINAL Stuffed Crust, Pizza Hut has done the unimaginable, taking the most craveable part of the Original Stuffed Crust pizza and letting it shine on its own. These new ‘Nothing But Stuffed Crust’ were exclusively available from January 5-7 in select Los Angeles and Dallas locations while supplies lasted.

Although the offer is no longer – we love the idea and it might be an inspiration for small Italian restaurants and pizzerias. We think it sounds delicious, ‘a literal ring of golden-brown crust baked to perfection with cheesy goodness inside’!

Starbucks joins effort to help speed COVID-19 vaccination delivery

  • Starbucks created a mock vaccine distribution site in Seattle
  • Starbucks created a mock vaccine distribution site in Seattle
  • Starbucks created a mock vaccine distribution site in Seattle

Last week, the Governor of the State of Washington, Jay Inslee announced at a press conference the goal of increasing the number of vaccines given to people each day from around 15,000 to 45,000. While the state hasn’t been allocated that many doses yet, that’s expected to change in the months ahead. To help meet the goal of being able to deliver more vaccines, the Governor has formed the new Washington State Vaccine Command and Coordination Center, a statewide public-private partnership comprised of companies including Starbucks, Microsoft, Costco, Kaiser Permanente, other health care groups and government organizations. Microsoft is lending its technology expertise and support, while Costco is focused on vaccine delivery by pharmacies. Kaiser Permanente is responsible for planning and delivery of mass vaccine doses to providers.

Nearly 24 million people in the United States have tested positive for COVID-19 and nearly 400,000 have died so far. So, this is an interesting co-operation in which the knowledge of Starbucks is focused on assisting with operational efficiency, developing models for vaccination centres that can be standardized and reproduced across the state and helping improve the patient experience. They tried to create the most streamlined Starbucks they ever built, that sells only one product. Read more about the knowledge they gathered in 10 days…

Well the most important fact is that most restaurants give their guests the opportunity to celebrate it on Friday 12, Saturday 13 and Sunday the 14th of February.
