--Yum or yuck? Bug tacos. Whatever you think, this photo gallery is a must see.

--Anheuser-Busch to make a "greener" beer. (No, this is not a St. Patrick's Day thing. It's an eco-friendly thing.) By the end of 2012, the company plans to whittle down its worldwide water use by 30% to 3.5 hectoliters of water for each hectoliter of product. In case you do not already know, each hectoliter is about 26.4 gallons.

--Ahem. Remember your manners: The BA Foodist offers tips for camera-happy diners.

--Hold the popcorn: Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton told the nation's movie-theater owners that the industry should do a better job of serving healthy snacks. Great, can't wait to pay $7.99 for a banana. (Find out who gets the credit for that joke here.)

--Can't stop the frying: Everything is OK at OK Donuts.

--A sugar cube for your espresso? Sweet eats in Death Valley.

--Twip of the Day: @kogibbq is offering up this special: "the stinky Leprechaun corned beef and cabbage burrito from Limerick $6."
