While the vast majority of purchases made via Craigslist go down without a problem, those don’t make the news; it’s the rare case of people getting scammed or attacked that earns the headlines. In an effort to reduce the chance of those sorts of incidents, one Pennsylvania community has created what it claims is the nation’s first Craigslist Transaction Safe Zone.
The police in Conshohocken, a borough on the outskirts of Philadelphia, recently decided that the police station parking lot and lobby were probably the safest places in town to allow area residents to arrange to meet with buyers and sellers from Craigslist, as the likelihood of being rooked out of your money or beaten up by a stranger drops when there are police officers in the vicinity and cameras rolling all the time.
Even with the Safe Zone available at all times of day and night, the Conshohocken police chief recommends that people arrange their transactions during the daytime and always bring a buddy.
Burger King unveiled its newest non-beef menu items Wednesday ahead of the company’s launch in India. When you hear the name Burger King, you assume the restaurant serves a plethora of burgers. And while that’s true in the United States, it won’t be the case for the company’s latest expansion into India, where menu items are beef-free.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the king of burgers will unveil a new versions of its signature Whopper sandwich when the company’s first restaurants in India open.
Burger King made the announcement in a Facebook post late Wednesday: “GREAT NEWS – The WHOPPER IS COMING SOON TO INDIA!”
The first post was quickly followed by the clarification, “We do not have beef on our menu but our options will certainly delight you.”
The new beef-free burgers include the Chicken Whopper, the Mutton Whopper and the Vegetable Whopper.
Burger King says it dropped its classic beef and pork menu items after keeping in mind the religious practices of the country’s population.
One sells a cheeseburger whose patty is 100 percent cheese, another sells meatballs the size of baseballs and a third tempts palates with insects on a skewer.
The wafting aroma of everything from Indonesian satays to BBQ pork and stone-oven pizza drifted into the city center, drawing throngs of foodies to the Antwerp quayside.
Thomas Serros, originally from San Francisco, has a specially outfitted bicycle he pedals to outdoor markets to sell his homemade tacos.
Demand was so great during the Antwerp festival that the meatballs ran out, but customers were patient enough to wait in line for the next batch.
Out of a small trailer, decorated to look like a barn, she serves a meatless cheeseburger that is coated in tempura batter, deep-fried and topped with spinach, spring onions and balsamic vinegar.
