Free Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Postmates


Postmates, the app-based delivery service, is starting to become a habit - especially when they're offering free or heavily discounted items.

This week, they're offering free regular, soy or pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. All you're paying for is delivery, which starts at $5. There's a limit of 2 lattes per person, but if you get 2 and you're close to a Starbucks, you're still coming out ahead AND it's delivered.

Visit Postmates to download the app. BTW: If you use the promo code nx3n, you'll get a $10 delivery credit and I'll get $10 after you use it. It's free to you. Why not help Cowtown Eats get a couple free deliveries?

Dining News: Cornflower Creamery Sets Opening Date


Cornflower Creamery will open on Saturday, Oct. 3 across the street from the State Capitol at 10th & L streets, reports Dani Anguiano in Sactown Magazine.

Sacramento native Cynthia Broughton decided to launch Cornflower after noticing a lack of ice cream makers in the downtown core. “We’ve had some really landmark ice cream makers in [other] neighborhoods, like Gunther’s and Vic’s, which I grew up with,” says Broughton, a former chef. “Especially now that downtown and midtown are developing so much, I think it’s time to add another ice cream maker to that environment.”

Not to mention, add a farm-to-scoop element to the mix. “Farming is in my roots,” says Broughton, who once ran her own 5-acre organic farm in Lake County, where she raised dairy goats and grew fruit trees. “I’ve always been a fan of the local movement and I want to work in as much seasonal produce [at Cornflower] as I can find.”

Read the entire story in Sactown Magazine.

Cornflower Creamery will take over the space formerly occupied by Cafe Roma. That restaurant closed in June 2014.

It will be located at 1013 L Street, and can be found online at http://www.cornflowercreamery.com/.

Gastronomicon: Burger King's new Whopper blackens Halloween's name - Your friend arrives to your Halloween party. His costume is clearly just a cheap mask he had in his closet. Are you happy? Do you wish he tried harder? Or do you just let it go, knowing that he could have shown up in something significantly more offensive and/or racist? The Halloween Whopper from Burger King is that guy, if that guy was put together from spare parts by a PR-obsessed bioengineer with an eye for synergizing branding opportunities.
