— The David Bowie tribute from Swift’s Attic came in the form of a burger with glitter fries, pink peppercorn chicken patty, ube puree, and English muffins decked out in Ziggy Stardust’s thunderbolt. It was only available last evening for the downtown restaurant’s Monday burger nights. Other food and drink memorials to the late diner across the country included Voodoo Doughnut and cocktails in Denver.

— Hyatt Hotels, which includes the Driskill Hotel and Hyatt Regency in Austin and Lost Pines, faced a credit card breach with payments from the hotel group’s restaurants from August to December.

— Burger bar chain Hopdoddy’s third Austin-area location opened yesterday in Round Rock.

— Along with Tyson Foods’ chicken donation to Nubian Queen Lola's Soul Food last fall, the meat processor company also gave Lola Stephens a food truck to help her efforts to feed those in need.
