Orange County isn't high on our priority list for coverage, but every now and then we have to touch base with our rich friends down south for, you know, balance. The big news this week: The lucky bastards are getting the second Dean & DeLuca in California. Did we say bastards? We meant, um...no, we meant bastards. The new location is slated for Newport Beach, Fashion Show Mall, 2009. Surprisingly, there's no Whole Foods competition down there, so it makes sense. We're not jealous.
