LA CANADA: Hey, a new Chipotle opens tomorrow at the new La Canada Town Center (near the intersection of Foothill Blvd. and Angeles Crest Hwy) and as usual, they've been giving away free burritos all day, until 10pm. Go! [EaterWire]
FROYO: At least they aren't trying to be all secretive about it: Coinciding with National Pomegranate Month (November, who knew), "nearly all" Red Mango stores are adding pomegranate frozen yogurt (made with POM juice) to their repertoire beginning November 14. [Eater Inbox]

Maybe it's all part of her contract: "Lakshmi...has been linked with a growing list of money-men since she split last year from...Salman Rushdie. She dated billionaire (and permanent bachelor) Ted Forstmann...she was seen canoodling with Russell Simmons...Lakshmi was seen last week...'grinding on the dance floor with some tall, young guy with a shaved head.'"
