BEVERLY HILLS— Up above, a looksee at Vampire Lounge, a new wine bar serving vino from Vampire Vineyards, yeah apparently this is real. Per the press release, the venue is "rumored to be owned by a circle of vampires," mmmhmm, and serves alcoholic grape juice with names like Dracula Syrah and Trueblood Pinot Noir (also not a joke), plus some chocolate and charcuterie. Right. [EaterWire]

INLAND EMPIRE— Not that this is terribly exciting, but just fyi, Chipotle is opening two new locations in the Inland Empire. The first cafe opens May 25 in the La Verne Town Center, the other on June 4 in the Montclair Mall. [EaterWire]
