FLATIRON— Flatiron coffee shop Birch Coffee is donating 15% of total sales on every second Thursday to Falling Whistles, a charity that works to improve the life for those living in the Congo. More information can be found at here. [EaterWire]

WEST VILLAGE— Lovely West Village cafe Doma just launched a new dinner menu. They have a new selection of snacks and starters, farmstead cheeses and cured meats, and a rotating list of four entrees, heavily sourced from Satur Farms. Everything is under $18. [EaterWire]

STUNTS—The Chicago Tribune's blog The Stew
decided to create the KFC Skinwich, the internet hoax sandwich made from fried chicken skin, cheese, and bacon. They write, "Your first instincts [sic] maybe [sic] to barf, but this is an amazing sandwich. This is what the Double Down strived to be." All good pageview-garnering fun, but what this has to do with Chicago beats us. [Tribune]

FAST FOOD—Zagat got sommelier Clare Shaheen of New York's TriBeCa Grill to pair wines with various fast food sandwiches, and while she does her best, some things just aren't meant to be. For example, she matches the McDonald's Filet-o-Fish with Chardonnay, saying: "A rich, buttery Chardonnay might also be good – it would completely overwhelm the sandwich so you wouldn't have to taste it."
