Posted By on Fri, Feb 4, 2011 at 7:30 AM

​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Eater SF and SFist bring good news and bad news: Zeitgeist is finally replacing the Porta-Potties in the beer garden with actual bathrooms. The bad news: The bar is closing until Feb. 14 in order to complete the work. Trust us, you'll make it until then. 

According to Grub Street, Monroe (473 Broadway), the North Beach bar-lounge opening in the DragonBar space, will be open around Valentine's Day as well. The pitch: drinks from a New York bartender, tapas and pizza, and live music.

Inside Scoop reports that the owners of the Stinking Rose have bought Paradise Bay in Sausalito and will turn it into Salito's (1200 Bridgeway, Sausalito) sometime in the late spring or early summer. The pitch: crab and steaks, steaks and crab.

Scoop also mentions that Marlowe's Anna Weinberg and Jennifer Puccio have a name for their new restaurant, in the old Joey and Eddie's: Park Tavern (1652 Stockton). Target date: late spring to early summer.

  • 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.'"
