* The Wall Street Journal checks in on Grant Achatz's health.

* Fat Joe Scapini, founder of the Jade Dragon tattoo parlor, died last week at 47. 

* Quote of the week: "'I've just got to feel that even though there is alcohol in this, there is also something good for you in there,' said Mark Palmieri of Chicago, as he took a swig of a spicy sour Minty Ginger Mojo-tino, made from fresh spearmint, fresh ginger, fresh lime juice, agave nectar and Juniper Green Organic Gin."

* If you think you're getting ripped off, you're probably right. If you think you're not, you're probably wrong.

* Headline of the week: "Hispanics' blood like liquid gold."

* Requiem for a trust.

* While the housing market is in the toilet, downtown rents are rising
