DOWNTOWN—The latest branch of Octopus opened recently, and per Blogdowntown, this is location number eight for the clubby-looking Japanese fusion joint. 729 W. 7th Street, at Flower; (213) 745-5580; website [BD]

CALIFORNIA—More Starbucks closures have been announced, and California has been hit pretty hard. The OC will lose 12 alone, and 76 will close throughout the state, including just three in LA. [LAT/FFM]

MALIBU—This Saturday (4/25), Crumbs will be doing the usual Grand Opening extravaganza free cupcake giveaway. The new location in Malibu (3939 Cross Creek Road, to be precise) will be handing out 1,000 freebies beginning at 9am. [EaterWire]

FILMDOM—The trailer for the latest food industry flick, the documentary Food, Inc. is now up. Like last year's King Corn, it looks like a movie version of foodie bible Omnivore's Dilemma, and of course, locavore shaman Michael Pollan figures heavily as a talking head. [Apple via ENY]
