Happy Friday on this stunning 80-degree day. It has been a food-filled week here and around the intranets.

This week, Tricia Woolfenden chronicled her obsession with McDonald’s shamrock shakes and informed readers of the best bars for out-of-towners and the best vegetarian restaurants for Meatless Monday.

Laine Doss debriefed us on South Beach Food and Wine’s Burger Bash and the ten strangest things at the festival. She also told us about the closing of Charcuterie Too! and how West Palm is cracking down on food trucks.

During my first SoBeWFF experience, I chatted with Jean-Georges and chronicled a well-known chef’s ditching a dinner he headlined. I’ve also been posting my eating around South Florida. If you have nominations for our 100 favorite dishes, please, drop a line in the comments.

Elsewhere online, Tracie McMillian continues to chronicle The American Way of Eating; one of the piggiest events in the circuit, Cochon 555, gets buzz; and South Florida Food & Wine lists Boca Raton and Delray Beach happy hours.
