This Week in Food: Geeks Who Drink, Reclaimin' Claim Jumper, and Noshin Nutella!

As usual, too many great stories this week on this infernal blog--read them all! Too lazy? Some highlights after the jump!

I focused mostly of our local megachains this week: news that the

founder of Claim Jumper wants his bankrupt baby back

, news that the Colorado phenomenon

Geeks Who Drink has finally invaded OC

and the ridiculous conditions the SanTana Planning Commission is putting

on a new Subway just to open


Shuji told of Gabbi's Mexican Kitchen in Orange offering the seven legendary moles of Oaxaca in honor of Día de los Muertos--take that, Rick Bayless!

Dave featured for our On the Line segment Jagdish Sanai of a restaurant I still have to visit: Punjabi Tandoor, in my hometown of Anacrime. He also told us where to find a much-better cheesecake than the ones you find at the Cheesecake Factory and brought out the fangs of food purists when he delineated five signs of a great pho shop.

Edwin matched sisig versus sisig and told of a Nutella-eating contest NEXT WEEK. And Vickie did a slideshow of 10 food-themed Halloween costumes and revealed Chipotle wants you to dress like a chicken nugget for one of its burritos.

Happy eating this weekend!
