SCANDAL WIREIt looks like the San Francisco Chronicle's food and wine section is the newest casualty of print media's decline. "Here now, the latest victim of print media implosion: The New York Times reports that the beloved food & wine section of the San Francisco Chronicle is getting axed. Anonymous Chronicle staffers tell the Times that instead of an entire food section, food coverage will be rolled into a new 'lifestyle' section that will also include coverage from the paper's home section. Apparently the working title for this brand-new section is 'Artisan,' and it's possible that it will debut in February 2014. Staffers report that the Chronicle's departing present Joanne Bradford said in a meeting that the food & wine section was not 'sustainable.'" [-EN-]

LISTICLESThe Houston Press' Christina Uticone lists her top picks for fast food options in town. At No. 1 is James Coney Island for the "Chefs and Show Dogs" series. "Normally I like my dogs pretty simple, with just some mustard, relish and onions, but the Holy Molé should not be passed up: spicy chicken Andouille sausage topped with tinga, molé sauce, crema fresca and minced onions, all on a Slow Dough pretzel bun and garnished with thinly sliced radish. Want to hear something crazy? The radish kinda makes the whole thing, with its cool, clean crunch. Definitely go on an empty stomach -- you'll need the room." [Houston Press]
