I must admit I'm panicky about linking to something that turns out to be an April Fool's Day hoax. To the best of my flawed ability to discern bullshit from genuine information, here is today's roundup.

Anchor Distilling Will Offer Tours
If they're anything like the brewery tours, you're going to want to book them well in advance. Anchor's The Anchor Distillery Tasting Room (1705 Mariposa) will let you peek into its inner working as of April 21. They'll be $35 per person and take place on Thursdays and Fridays at 2:30 and 4:30 p.m.

Marla Bakery Does Dinner
As of Friday, April 15, Marla Bakery (3619 Balboa) will serve breakfast, lunch, and brunch — plus dinner Wednesdays through Saturdays, with Sunday Suppers happening once each month. (This is at the mothership, not the brand-new Ferry Building kiosk.) Look for boquerones ($5), a sprouted grain salad ($12), a lamb neck confit ($24) and more.

Souvla Had a Donkey for April Fool's Day
I opened a press release from Souvla this morning saying it would have a donkey, and emailed the publicist saying, "Hey, good one." Turns out they did, along with tacos and guac. As with everything Souvla (517 Hayes) does, I gravitated toward the lamb. If you still want for dinner plans, there'll be a mariachi band this evening as "La Souvlaria" continues, hard-shell-inside-soft-tacos and all. They're opening a second location on Divis later this spring and I, uh, strongly encourage them to take this Mexican angle more than once per year. 

Hina Yakotori Soft-Opens in Temescal
Jonathan Moon's chicken-ful menu has a lot of chicken parts. According to Inside Scoop, Hina Yakitori also has "neck, skin, liver, gizzard, and even knee cartilage."

Happy 60th Birthday, Caffe Trieste!
Hoodline's Geri Koeppel caught it. (No surprise there!)

Questlove Ate His Way Through S.F.
According to Eater, Questlove went to Atelier Crenn, State Bird, and Craftsman & Wolves.

Remember the NYT's Pea Guacamole? This is worse.
Yesterday, the Washington Post published a recipe for an English pea panna cotta. It was not published today and there is no indication that this is April Food's Day trolling.

  • 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.'"
