Make plans for a grand time in New Orleans
NAC
It is time to start thinking about the 2013 NAC Annual Convention at the Hilton Riverside Hotel in New Orleans on Aug. 6-9. As an enticement, we draw your attention to the very special Thursday evening festivities. It starts at 6:00 with a reception at the Hilton. We are working with Screentrade Magazine to bring their "Popcorn Challenge" to the event. Later that evening, we will dine at the award-winning Palace Cafe. This classic New Orleans restaurant, located at the foot of the French Quarter, serves contemporary Creole food in an upbeat and lively grand cafe. The restaurant, housed in the historic Werlein's music building, has won a number of local and national awards since it opened in 1991.

It is going to be a great time so make your plans to stay over on Thursday night and take part in the exciting Friday morning program which will be announced to much fanfare shortly. Tentative plans are for members to roll up their sleeves and participate in a volunteer activity to aid the City of New Orleans. Visit www.naconline.org to register, and don't forget to make your travel and hotel reservations now.

CinemaCon showcases movie theater advances from earth-shaking sound to plastic popcorn lids
Las Vegas Weekly
Josh Bell writes, "After several years of attending CinemaCon, the annual trade show for the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO), I may have gotten a little jaded about the booths hawking the latest innovations in movie-theater carpeting, ticket-printing machines and hand sanitizers. But the excitement of the show (the first place I saw such genuine innovations as the Coca-Cola Freestyle and the Dyson Airblade, both now commonplace) came back when I met 21-year-old Justin Kovitz, inventor of the Shake n' Share popcorn bucket lid, who enthused about his first time ever at a trade show."

Chances are, you've heard that lard is enjoying a renaissance. From foodies proclaiming its superior baking properties to in-depth radio reports exploring its history in the American diet, lard has recaptured interest and reemerged on the cooking scene.

CinemaCon: Disney, not government, leading soda size restrictions
Deadline
New York City Mayor Bloomberg didn't have the power to make soda regulations fly, but one movie studio did. Two years ago Disney enacted a sweeping health initiative across its brand and it's still the only studio to voluntarily limit the use of its branding in concessions marketing to children. You won't see Disney's kid-targeted brands on movie theater cups larger than a kids' size. Anything larger is strictly forbidden from licensing, which one movie-branding vendor discovered the hard way.

Ballpark doubles down on smoked meats
Shepherd Express
Though it's unlikely to replace the traditional bratwurst anytime soon, brisket has been a hot item at Miller Park in Milwaukee, since the stadium's kitchen operations introduced a smoker in 2011. Served in sandwiches and sliders, as well as under mashed potatoes and gravy in an odd parfait that looks like an ice-cream sundae, brisket proved so popular that the stadium added a second smoker last year, when it sold nearly 30,000 pounds of the smoked beef. Given that success, it's not surprising that the ballpark has continued to expand its smoked-meat lineup this year.

America: Still a soda nation, after all these years
Fortune via CNN Money
Maybe we shouldn't drink more Coke than water, some Americans are starting to realize. More people in the U.S. are spurning the soda aisle, reaching instead for tea, juice and flavored water. Soda sales in the U.S. have, in fact, flat-lined for the two biggest pop retailers, Coke and PepsiCo, both of which reported earnings recently. This is part of a larger trend, says Thomas Mullarkey, a senior stock analyst with Morningstar, who adds that sales of carbonated beverages in the U.S. and Western Europe have been dragging for the past 10 years. So, what's a soda giant to do? For starters, look beyond the U.S. Emerging markets are extremely important for Coke and Pepsi. Overseas sales account for roughly half of Pepsi's revenue, and more than 60 percent of Coke's.

That is the question before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which has been flooded with comments about a proposed change to milk labeling rules. The agency has received more than 30,000 comments on the issue, many of which indicate consumers are confused about what exactly is being proposed, according to Mary Poos, Ph.D., deputy director of FDA's Office of Nutrition, Labeling and Dietary Supplements.
