  • A toe has gone missing from a Canadian bar and hotel. The bar serves a Klondike-inspired “Sourtoe cocktail” (aka a shot of whisky with a toe floating in the glass) using a human toe that was cured in salt for six months. They serve it during “toe time,” 9 to 11 p.m. every night, and charge a $2,500 fine for theft or swallowing. “We fortunately have a couple of back up toes, but we really need this one back," a rep said in a press release. "This was our new toe, and it was a really good one. We just started using it this weekend," a hotel manager Geri Coulbourne told CBCNews.
  • UberEats will now allow for tipping.
  • Chicago chef Grant Achatz gives some props to the Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine:
  • Starbucks plans on hiring 2,500 refugees across Europe, a first step in its commitment to hire 10,000 refugees around the world this year. The coffee chain will partner with International Rescue and on-the-ground NGOs to match potential employees with positions.
  • 40 year-old St. Louis restaurant and music venue Cicero’s is closing, and the locals are in mourning.
  • Comedian and Eater contributor Sara Benincasa convinced author Neil Gaiman to do a public reading of the Cheesecake Factory menu if she could raise $500,000 for charity by June 20. She raised $100,000 by the deadline, so fans are wondering if he’ll read a portion of the menu.
