Al Roker and Cheech and Chong in the first episode of Cold Cuts Today
  • Today co-host and America’s weatherman Al Roker is now in charge of the internet’s best new content. Roker has an online series called Cold Cuts, in which he talks with other famous people about sandwiches. Notoriously stoned comedic actors Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong are guests in the first episode.
  • Congratulations to Milk Bar dessert queen Christina Tosi, who just landed at No. 30 on Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list.
  • The Food and Drug Administration wants to crack down on applying the “milk” name to products such as almond milk. “An almond doesn’t lactate, I will confess,” says FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb, notes the Cut.
  • An awful patron at a Texas steakhouse has been banned from the restaurant for leaving a racist message on their check, reports USA Today. The unnamed diner, who was served by an employee named Khalil, wrote, “we don’t tip terrorist” and left a zero on the receipt’s tip line.
  • Finally, singer Mya, whom music fans from the ’90s and early aughts might remember for her role in that “Lady Marmalade” cover, has launched her own brand of vegan wine, according to Live Kindly. The Planet 9 Fine Wine by Mya is now available for purchase from the singer’s online shop.
