• TGI Fridays’ “all you can eat” appetizer stunt is becoming a permanent fixture of the menu: The casual chain announced today it will offer $10 Endless Apps, including choices like mozzarella sticks, potato skins, and wings. Unlike previous “limited time only” deals, guests can switch it up between food choices in between each round. (If you haven’t already read the hilarious take by Gawker — RIP — about the misery of eating just one type of appetizer, endlessly, do so right now.)

• The latest chain to enter the breakfast wars? Carl’s Jr., which announced it’ll serve its breakfast burger — featuring bacon, egg, and hash browns all atop a beef patty — throughout the day. Carl’s Jr., of course, is the chain that pioneered whatever the opposite of all-day breakfast would be called, serving its full burger and fries menu throughout the morning, too.

• Grocery chain Wegmans enjoys a cult following, but many once-loyal customers are calling for a boycott over the store’s carrying of Trump Winery products. The Richmond-Post Dispatch reports 10 Virginia stores currently offer the wine on shelves.

• Chicago’s beloved Au Cheval, best known for this epic burger, will expand its burger-focused spinoff even more: Eater Chicago reports the charmingly named Small Cheval will open its second standalone location in the Loop.

• Celebrity chef Duff Goldman, hot off a wave of public goodwill ever since President Donald Trump ripped off his 2008 inauguration cake, will open a second location of his Charm City Cakes brand in Baltimore’s Harbor East.

• If you’ve ever looked at your bill after a night at Dave & Busters wondering how you dropped so much money on watermelon margaritas, singer Selena Gomez feels your pain. Page Six reports Gomez spent $30,000 on her boyfriend’s birthday celebration at the chain. Her boyfriend is R&B superstar the Weeknd, though, so it was probably worth it.
