Win Free Bread For a Year; $40 Martini at Oak

LOVERS LANE—Empire Baking Company has just launched a new bread, a whole wheat sesame loaf that ferments for over 24 hours. The bakery is giving out free samples from June 17-23 as part of a naming contest; the winner gets free Empire bread for the remainder of 2014. (Gluten-free folks need not apply.) [EaterWire]

DESIGN DISTRICT—Got a wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket? Head to Oak, where they've just started serving a $40 martini that's made with "Double Cross Vodka, dark chocolate pearls, Godiva White Chocolate, real gold leaf and seasonal berries." (For the slightly more budget-conscious, Oak also has a rolling martini cart during Friday lunch service that serves $8 martinis.) [EaterWire]

RETAIL WIRE—In addition to its spicy ketchup and mustard that launched last year, Whataburger will now also sell one-pound rolls of its "premium pork sausage" and 16-ounce bottles of honey butter (or is that honey "butter"?) at HEB and Central Market stores. [Austin Chronicle]
