Let's kick-off this brief food-and-drink roundup with a hilariously sad statistic:

• So says this article, "School lunch is a lot like prison food, only worse."

Enlarge the infographic that says so here:

• Next up, Westword reported last week on New Belgium Brewing's plans for a second brewery somewhere on the East Coast, ideally to be under contract by this year's end.

LuLus, the latest in a string of self-serve frozen yogurt shops, is now open.
  • LuLu's, the latest in a string of self-serve frozen yogurt shops, is now open.

And to local news ...

• Beer-man Eli Shayotovich reports that Monument's Pikes Peak Brewing Company will have its soft opening this weekend.

LuLu's Frozen Yogurt will host its grand opening celebration on June 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. A $1 donation, which will go to the March of Dimes, earns you a dish of yogurt plus toppings.

• Though the July and August Farm-to-Table Starlight Dinner Series nights are sold out at Venetucci Farm — call the Pikes Peak Community Foundation to get on the waiting list — seats are still available for the Monday, Sept. 12 dinner featuring chef Ed Clark from Bon Appetit Catering. Seats are $125, all of which goes to benefit the farm from which these meals will draw their ingredients.

• The Island Grill will host a fish fry from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday, May 27, featuring a variety of fish dinners in the $7 to $10 range.

• Lastly, another early heads-up on Garden of the Gods Gourmet's summer tea party on the patio from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 8. Tea samples and tea-friendly pastries baked by the outfit's pastry chef are what $12 buys you.
