Here we are, another episode of the FOODBEAST Katchup. If you missed out on all the food news this week, fear not. This series catches you up on all the top stories in the wide world of food.
This week, no one did any work after Pokemon GO launched. Understandably.
That’s OK, though. Because the rest of the world seems to be in the same boat.
Folks have begun to use Pokemon GO as a way to figure out where to eat instead of Yelp. A bakery is charging its customers based on what team they picked for Pokemon GO. Team Valor? Half off. Team Mystic? Double price.
A girl turned her snack stand into a PokeStop and when people came to collect in-game swag, she sold them food. There’s a Pokemon Safari going on this weekend in Ohio where you can get drunk and catch Pokemon. Sounds like a dream.
Finally, our resident drunkard Sean decided to create a Pokemon GO drinking game instead of writing this Katchup recap. Whatever.
Check out this week’s Pokemon Katchup!
