SILVER LAKE— Great news for Silver Lake and coffee geeks near and far. Proprietor Michael McConnell is finally ready to open his long-tracked and eagerly anticipated coffee bar (by way of Seattle), Caffe Vita. A test run will take place this coming Saturday at 7 p.m. [EaterWire]

SANTA MONICA—Although OC export Nekter Juice Bar has been serving in its new Santa Monica locale for the last few weeks, management is planning a grand opening party this coming Friday with free 16-ounce smoothies and juices from 7 to 11 a.m. The first 50 drinkers also get $25 gift certificates.

AROUND TOWN—Food Genius started as an app to help diners find a restaurant based on the dish they wanted to eat, but it has evolved into "enterprise software that could pre-chew big data for the restaurant industry." By indexing 14,000 ingredients from various restaurant databases, chefs and restaurateurs can tell what dishes are popular in an area, how those dishes are priced, and more. [Fast Company via -EN-]
