Yes, there’s a massive food-shortage wracking the world, leading to higher prices, global protests, food scarcity, and government overthrows. Yes, there’s evidence that it’s all the fault of U.S. citizens and our wasteful, carnivorous lifestyles. Yes, wasting food was again recently cited as possibly the most fossil-fuel-hemorrhaging practice that aids the destruction of our planet. But none of that seems to be stopping Spring Street Smokehouse from holding a second annual rib-eating contest next weekend in Downtown. Real cool, guys, real cool. [L.A. Downtown News]
