In the News: Hummus Milkshakes

••• Time Out likes the hummus milkshakes at Hummus & Pita Co.: “The all-natural formula is made with just chickpeas, tahini, banana, dates and almond milk, which means it has a lot of protein, fiber and vitamins. […] There are five flavors: original, chocolate, strawberry, pistachio, and butter pecan.”

••• Bubby’s “is the latest [restaurant] in New York City to introduce menu items made with cannabidiol, a derivative of the cannabis plant, as in marijuana or hemp. And while cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, doesn’t yield the ‘high’ associated with tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC), another cannabis compound, it often is touted by cannabis supporters and some medical experts as offering a host of benefits, including stress and pain relief. Starting this week, Bubby’s will feature drinks made with hemp-derived CBD. The offerings, including coffee, tea and lemonade, will sell for $10 each.” Aldo of note: “Even without the CBD products, Mr. Silver said business at Bubby’s has been strong during the past year, with sales up nearly 13% over the same period last year. Bubby’s two New York City restaurants have annual revenue of about $16 million, he said.” —Wall Street Journal

••• Among the thefts in the Tribeca Trib police blotter: “A Nassau Street resident left his 2014 Audi, with the keys in the car, in the garage [at 8 Spruce]. When he returned an hour later, it was gone. The attendant said he assumed that the driver was taking the car to have it serviced.”

••• A Tribecan threw a party for three retiring/retired teachers from P.S. 234. —Tribeca Trib

••• “Community Board 1 has enacted a forceful resolution calling upon the administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio to appoint as chief of the City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission an advocate for protecting historic New York City structures.” —Broadsheet
