BC Tacos
Hes's got lunch...but no name.
You've seen him before on the side of the BC Tacos food truck and seen him at the BC Cafe -- but did you realize that that poor caveman never had a name?

Scandalous, really, but finally BC Tacos' owner, Brett Chiavari, is prepared to give his adorable, neanderthal mascot a title -- because even a caveman gets annoyed at being referred to as "buddy" and "pal" forever.

101 Cantina is the site of many arrests.
Most restaurants in Boca Raton's Mizner Park area are known as genteel establishments where a tony crowd can savor a good meal and a few martinis. But 101 Cantina, the Southern cousin of Gainesville's famous tailgate party place, didn't seem to get that memo.

Jaxson's Ice Cream, Caffe Luna Rosa Up Minimum Wage: President Obama Pleased (Video)

Jaxson's employees get a better wage, thanks to a nudge by President Obama.
It looks like businesses all over the country are taking President Obama's proposal to raise workers' minimum wage to $10.10 to heart.

The President, who proposed upping the minimum wage to $10.10 during his January 2014 State of the Union address, has also taken his fight on the road, talking about raising wages at every opportunity he can -- and citing examples of businesses who have decided to pay their workers a fair, livable wage.

Recently, during a speech at Central Connecticut State University, President Obama named several companies committed to upping employee wages, saying "it's good busines to do right by your workers. Some of the companies mentioned? Costco, the Gap, and Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor Restaurant. In his talk, the President said that Jaxson's is "an ice cream parlor that's been in business since 1956" and that the restaurant will "lift workers' wages to at least $10.10 without cutting back on hiring."

Whole Foods Co-CEO Walter Robb was invited to speak at Lynn University this past Wednesday as part of the Dively Frontiers in Globalization lecture series. The annual series invites "outstanding individuals who have demonstrated exceptional leadership in world markets" to speak to the community about their work. Past lecturers have included Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, and Gen. Barry R. McCaffrey.

But just as Robb started to address the audience with "I appreciate the warm welcome," a woman in the audience interrupted the talk with a question about Whole Foods worker Rhiannon Broschat.

According to the Palm Beach Post, the woman was removed from the audience, with Robb saying this was not the place to discuss the issue, adding that the public didn't have all the facts because it was a personnel matter and therefore confidential.
