FUNDRAISING — Chef Frank Prisinzano (Frank, 'Lil Frankie's, Sauce) has a web series called Sauce'd about his food-focused travels through Italy. He's raising money for the second season right now on Mobcaster, a site similar to Kickstarter. Check out the teaser for season two on his Mobcaster page. [EaterWire]

GRAMERCY — Here's a funny promotion: This weekend you can get a free side of bacon during brunch at the original location of Blue Smoke if you tell your server that "the Aporkalypse is coming." [EaterWire]

MICHELIN MADNESS It seems that Michelin accidentally leaked some of their 2013 UK stars a week early. Some restaurants on the Michelin website suddenly had stars this morning where there had not been stars before. After much speculation about the veracity of the new stars, and whether it was a tech mistake or a deliberate PR leak, Michelin clarified that the leaked results may not be the complete 2013 results. Head over to Eater National for some of the leaked results. [Eater National]
