The City of London is closing down Dundas Street to all vehicles on weekends for the rest of summer.

The move is one the city hopes will support physical distancing and make it easier for businesses along Dundas Street, from Talbot to Wellington streets.

Dundas Place will be closed between Talbot and Wellington streets Friday and Saturday evenings between 6-11pm and on Sundays between 10-4.

In keeping with public safety during the pandemic, temporary outdoor sanitization stations will be set up along the street.

Remy Labesque is an engineer at Tesla, but he’s also a chocolate designer.

Remy has been working to engineer the perfect chocolate chip.

Basically, he applied all of his knowledge around industrial design and engineering to chocolate chips and came up with a new shape that makes the chips melt smoother and taste better.

After a lot of experimentation, the chips wound up looking like pyramids and, apparently, they really are better than normal chocolate chips.

But if you want them, it’s going to cost you. The company made them out of super premium chocolate, so for a bag that’s just over one pound, you’ll pay $30. That’s roughly 10 times the cost of a bag of Nestle chocolate chips.

Budweiser is releasing a new beer called Budweiser Zero.

It’s only 50 calories and alcohol free.
