Hog and Rocks Opens, Cafe Prague Closes Its Doors

Posted By on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 9:52 AM


Monitoring the past 96 hours of gossip and cold, hard facts about restaurant openings and closings in San Francisco.

SFoodie doesn't know what you all did over your three-day weekend, but we spent most of it on the couch, catching up on True Blood episodes and ruing the millions of dollars the city spent on making the fog light up in pretty colors. 

Two men who weren't quite so lazy: Maverick's Scott Youkilis and Tres Agaves's Eric Rubin opened Hog and Rocks (3431 19th Street, 550-8627, this weekend. The pitch: oysters, artisanal ham plates, and cocktails. SFoodie interviewed Youkilis about the ham thing a few months ago.

Also busy: Anthony Myint and Danny Bowien, who rolled out Mission Chinese Food last night. Check out Tamara Palmer's pop review.


E. at Alcademics reports on yet another great bartender who's abandoning his customers to become a "brand ambassador" for booze labels. This time

it's Erick Castro from Rickhouse, who's going to sign treaties

and negotiate arms deals for Plymouth and Beefeater gins. SFoodie

doesn't want to be anyone's brand ambassador, but we would like

diplomatic immunity for a few of the things we've done under the influence (of Beefeater, in particular).

And another two pieces of intel we regret to pass on: Jay

B. at Grub Street hears that City Kebab (1338 Polk) has

closed. A commenter

on Mission Mission confirms that Cafe Prague (2140 Mission)

has followed its North Beach predecessor into the beyond.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
