Lolita Daytime Menu, Local Hot Dog Round Up, More

1) Munjoy Hill: Lolita has added outdoor seating and is now serving its daytime menu from 11 a.m. onward each day. [Tipline]

2) West End: Alex Steed of Knack Factory has interviewed Briana Holt, baker for the upcoming Tandem Cafe and Bakery. Holt discusses the resurgence of bakery chefs and bakers, and reaffirms her intense love for sandwiches, which was also a topic of conversation in her recent chat with Eater Maine. [BDN]

3) Portland: Coffee by Design (CBD) celebrated its 20th anniversary on Tuesday, July 1. Its annual Birthday Blend roast is available in 2lb packages at the special price of $19.94 through July 7, and CBD locations will have coffee and tea drink specials through the end of July. This month a portion of the proceeds from the Independents Blend, celebrating independent businesses, will benefit Portland Buy Local, an organization which CBD co-owners Mary Allen Lindemann and Alan Spear helped found.

4) Maine: In anticipation of July 4 weekend, Laura McCandlish covers a few locavore hot dogs for the Press Herald, including Maine Family Farms pork-beef hot dogs, "a plainer, blank canvas that Portland husband-and-wife chefs Damian Sansonetti and Ilma Lopez choose for their wildly inventive dogs at Blue Rooster Food Co." The piece may reopen a debate about what constitutes "local," as it details how Pineland Farms has its meat trucked to Milwaukee to be made into hot dogs. [PPH]
