Spiked! and Slashfood's KitKat "News" in Today's Eater's Digest

An early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives.

Spiked! Is returning this spring to the Desert Botanical Garden. Starting March 4th the DBG will be hosting 8 nights of local music, food and drink. The $25 ticket will get you all access to the gardens, a free meal (with a cash bar), and a great concert. Make sure to get your tickets in advance, all shows sold out last year!

Yesterday on slashfood.com, they reported that Nestle Had announced new Kit Kat flavors specifically marketed for Japan. Flavors like soy sauce, strawberry, and blueberry cheesecake. After searching the internet to find a spot to possibly purchase these gems, it turns out they have been out since the beginning of 2009. Oops!

The James Beard Awards semifinalists were announced today. Take a look back at some of our past reviews of restaurants such as Christopher's, St. Francis, Sam Fox's True Food, or his newest spot Modern Steak.
