Desert lobsters, Texas-sized pizza and a golden age for vino

July 1, 2009 |  5:55 pm


A sampling of stories from across the Los Angeles Times:

-- Bob and Pam Eddy have fought to make a go of it selling live "desert lobsters," or Australian red claw crayfish. But wildlife officials have made the state of Nevada -- yes, Nevada -- even less hospitable to the crustaceans.

--Bewildered by the number of wine choices in the supermarket? (It's about the only downside to living in a golden age for wine, especially California wine.) There are now more than 2,800 wineries in California, reports the Wine Institute.

--Texas isn't exactly known for its pizza. But that's not stopping our man in Houston, who's on a reader-driven, music-inspired road trip.
