Son of a Gun, which has had a weekday lunch for a while now, is now launching lunch service every day of the week from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., which means you can get shrimp toast, lobster rolls, and mighty fine cocktails any day you choose. In addition, an outdoor patio space (presumably in the front along West Third?) is in the works, which means you can enjoy Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo's cooking under the stars.

First We Feast has a feature on Homeboy Industries, a nonprofit that helps former criminals start a career in the food industry. Best line: "I came from nothing and became something. Now I'm helping other people who are coming from nothing to be better."

Newsweek steps into Guelaguetza and Wexler's Deli with To Live and Dine in LA author Josh Kun, with a longer look at how the menus of the past show the city's dining evolution. Apparently the Newsweek writer gave up years-long vegetarianism to sample some goat at Guelaguetza, which is commitment to journalism.

— Osso is commencing lunch service in the Arts District tomorrow, which means you can get a gut-busting fried chicken (or that amazing patty melt) for lunch during the weekdays. Or you know, get a farro & beet salad if you want need to stay awake after lunch.

— The Fat Dog on Fairfax is closed today for a paint refresh. Nothing like a new coat of paint to help you get through the dog days of summer.  To celebrate their reopening tomorrow after a weekend of taking in paint fumes, they'll be having an all-night happy from from 4 p.m. and beyond.

— Toddrickallen shares that Pulse Cafe in Santa Monica has closed it doors. With places like Kye's and Beaming on the block, the yoga crowd favorite couldn't keep up with the juices, smoothies, and more. It's now for lease, if you think you can out-juice the competitors on Montana Avenue.

— Will the healthy folks go for the Coolhaus and Clover mashup? Will this make smoothies and juice taste better?

— FoodGPS says the secret dish of the week is the awesome-looking banh mi at Del Rey Deli Co. Say the name of that sandwich shop five times fast.

— Sister site Vox debunks the idea that kale is bad for you, which means salad and juice-lovers around Los Angeles can breathe easy. Eat as much of the green stuff as you want.
