There’s not always enough time in the day to skim a lengthy, re-worded press release that’s been stamped with “breaking” or “exclusive.” And some stories don’t warrant an entire page of prose. Each week we’ll gather the most important tidbits of Dallas food news and post them here, on SideDish. Because sometimes all you need is the scoop.

Zoli’s is baking festive meat wreaths for the holidays: Yes, you read that correctly. According to their Facebook page: “Zoli’s World Famous* Meat Wreath stromboli…now available for your holiday parties!!Call 214-942-ZOLI to order…24 hours advance notice required!”

Ramen pop-up shop to take over Dubliner on Lower Greenville: Lucia sous chef Justin Holt will be featuring Yakitori and ramen made with Holleman Farms poultry. According to the release: “Ramen will be $10 a bowl and Yakitori Skewers will cost $2, this is a cash only event…Holt will feature his signature Ramen at The Dubliner on December 7 starting at 7 p.m. until the soup is gone and the last skewer is passed. You can snag a bowl for a mere $10 cash and a skewer for $2. People are encouraged to come early, as it is common for Holt’s events to sell out within an hour or so.” The event begins at 7 p.m. on Monday, December 7.

Buc-ee’s comes to Denton: Multiple media outlets have reported this week that Buc-ee’s is coming to Denton. I’ve never been to a Buc-ee’s before, but I do know that they sell something called “beaver nuggets”— which is fun to say.

Kate Weiser is selling chocolate at The Shops at Legacy pop-up: The chocolatier is currently selling holiday-inspired treats at The Shops at Legacy in Plano. Expect hand-painted truffles, and gourmet candy galore.
