MEDIA WORLD—Some very sad news from the Beer Week festivities: after spending some time at 21st Amendment, beer writer/aficionado Bill Brand was struck by a MUNI car on his way out. According to Beer & Nosh, he's currently in the hospital in critical but stable condition. [B&N]
 

'BUCKSWIRE—Howard Schultz has confirmed that Starbucks will soon be offering a value meal: "On March 3, we will introduce a selection of new pairings at $3.95.
