Plus Off the Grid application season is now open, Amazon Prime has started booze delivery (but not in S.F., yet), and e-cigarettes are kinda icky on the inside.

Sous Beurre Kitchen's Five-Course Chef's Menu
As of this evening, Dec. 11, Michael Mauschbaugh's Sous Beurre Kitchen will debut an $85, five-course, French-Provencal omakase-style menu with seatings at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays at the six-seat chef's counter. Optional pairings with small-production French wines are available, but the food itself sounds superb: crawfish bouillabaisse, poached goose breast, and a savory onion tart.

Local Mission Eatery Closes De. 19
Inside Scoop's Jonathan Kauffman noted that Local Mission Eatery will close next week after five years in business. While its companion businesses, Local Mission Market and Local Cellar, are not going anywhere, another part of owner Yaron Milgrom's empire, Local Mission Market, closed in November 2014 after numerous graffiti attacks and accusations of discriminatory policies with respect to customers. While Milgrom said then that the decision was more emotional than financial, in this case it appears to be the opposite. Business was down, and a chef is moving out of San Francisco.

Off the Grid Applications Open
Are you itching to do more with your food truck than sleeping in it while trying to avoid getting ticketed? Do you have a clever pun that you're just dying to frame a food business around? Well, great: Off the Grid is now accepting applications for 2016. Bon chance!

Amazon Prime Now Delivers Booze in NYC
They were doing this in Seattle for awhile, but it was hard to start in N.Y.C. as Amazon needs to use third-party delivery services with liquor licenses, according to Tech Times. I can't imagine S.F. is that far behind, and at $7.99 fee for one hour, zero charge for two hours, it's not bad. I will take back everything bad I ever said about the Everything Store.

The Contents of E-Cigs Are Predictably Gross
Wired breaks down the contents of your vape. E-cigarettes are mostly water, nicotine, vegetable glycerin (to make the clouds denser), propylene glycol (an alcohol used in fog machines), and our old boogeyperson, proprietary flavorings that aren't fully disclosed. The one that makes it taste buttery can cause a condition called "popcorn lung."

  • 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.'"
