San Antonio’s Historic Missions Receive UNESCO World Heritage Status

The wait is finally over: The San Antonio Missions have officially been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The decision was announced on July 5 at the annual UNESCO World Heritage committee meeting in Bonn, Germany. An elite list with just 22 existing U.S. landmarks included, the five missions (including the Alamo) are taking their place among other great American historic and cultural institutions like the Statue of Liberty and Independence Hall, in addition to natural treasures such as the Grand Canyon and world wonders like the Great Wall of China. The missions, which are the largest collection of the Spanish colonial architecture in the U.S., are the third designation in the country in the last 20 years. See the full release to learn more about the historic sites.

An Open Letter From Arby’s to Vegetarians Across America

On July 7, Arby’s released the following: Dear Vegetarians: We respect you. We respect your life decisions. With that in mind, we want it to be abundantly clear that this letter is not meant to sway or convert you. We’re sharing this to offer our support. Nearly a year ago, we embarked on a journey to tell America about our meats. By now, you’ve likely heard the Arby’s tagline: We Have The Meats. It’s tough to hear, but it is what it is. We have many meats. And we have quality meats. It is understandable that you disapprove of our meat-bravado. Your voices have been heard. Letters, emails, voicemails, Tweets and Facebook comments – we hear you. We love our meats, but realize they’re not for everyone. Then on Sunday, June 28, we launched a meat innovation that has likely tempted you: Brown Sugar Bacon. It’s our pepper bacon, glazed in-restaurant with brown sugar and then cooked to perfection. It may be hard to resist…even for you. Hardcore vegetarians likely won’t budge, but for those of you who are on the fringe or new to the game, avoidance can’t be easy. We, at Arby’s, have created this temptation. So, we’d like to help. See the full release to see the rest of Arby’s letter.
