FOURTH OF JULY: LORO’S TAKEAWAY MEAL PACK Why is Loro’s takeaway meal pack a great idea even if you’re not going to use it for an actual picnic-in-the-park? Because the tasty deal is anchored by a rack of ribs – and these Asian-smokehouse experts do ’em up so moist and tender that, mmmmmmm, wow, that’s why. The convenient pack also comes with two sides – choose among snap peas, sweet corn, cabbage salad, tomato cucumber salad, crispy potatoes – and coconut-scented rice and two cookies. Note: They’re taking pre-order now for pick-up on July 4th, beginning at noon.

Loro,

FREE CORVID SOUFFLÉ Yes, it’s our daily special, served up gratis to star-chambered citizens everywhere!

Wade.
