  • Beer Lands at 2015 Outside Lands
Plus it seems like we're getting a Taco Bell Cantina that serves liquor one way or another, but community opposition might make life difficult for Pier 29 redevelopment.

Outside Lands' Food Lineup Announced
If we weren't already super-excited for Radiohead, The Muppets, and Grimes, we would be now. Outside Lands released its 2016 food lineup, and to no one's surprise, it's even bigger than in years past. Woodhouse Fish Co.'s role has expanded into Outside Clams, A Taste of the Bay Area brings in newcomers like Trestle, Itani Ramen, and The Farmer's Wife. Magnolia Brewing's Dave McLean is curating Beer Lands, adding Harmonic Brewing to a lineup that already includes Calicraft, Lost Coast, and Sierra Nevada. Wine Lands has expanded to 40 winemakers and 120 wines, while the new food vendors include Belcampo Meat Co., Artis Coffee, Bini's Kitchen, Fine & Rare, Four Barrel Coffee, KoJa Kitchen, Rove Kitchen, The Japanese Pantry, Homestead Cookies, Il Morso, and Mozzeria. The Gastromagic Stage lineup hasn't been released yet, but pay close attention to that one, because it was where all the weirdest shit happened last year. 

Taco Bell Cantina Clearly Going With a Plan B
The Taco Bell Cantina in SoMa encountered stiff neighborhood opposition to its proposal to sell liquor; that's all still up in the air. Eater reports that the chain wants to open another location at 2528B Durant Ave. near UC Berkeley because dammit, we deserve a margarita with our Chalupa.

Make This the Summer of Wine and Music
Everyone knows about BottleRock but 7x7 has this handy rundown of winery concerts this summer. Livermore's Wente is the clear winner, with Diana Ross, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Melissa Etheridge.

Halal Guys Day Is June 3

But like Din Tai Fung, it's nowhere near us. S.F. should get a Halal Guys of its own this summer, but for now, you'll have to schlep down to 81 Curtner Avenue in San Jose, 53 miles south of its planned Union Square location.

Souvla Expands to Divis
The toast of Hayes Valley, Greek eatery Souvla is opening a second location at 531 Divisadero early next month, according to Eater.

Surprise! The Telegraph Hill Dwellers Don't Want Pier 29 to Become a Destination
Hoodline goes deep into neighborhood opposition against Pier 29's eventual transformation at the hands of Jamestown L.P. and SFMADE into a coffee-and-beer utopia. They're disparaging it as a mini-mall for tourists.

Aziza Closing for Renovations Starting May 22
Via Eater, Aziza's (5800 Geary) sprucing up  will take two months.

It'll Be Very Cheap to Eat at an Atlanta Falcons Game
Via ESPN, the Falcons have apparently put a stop to ridiculous gouging practices on food and drink, or at least they will when the new stadium opens next season. You'll be able to get a bottomless soda for $2, a slice of pizza for $3, and a basket of chicken tenders for $6. (A Bud Light America Light will be only $5, too.)

Branded Orange Peels, Ice Cube Logos
Now that everyone compulsively Instagrams everything they consume, savvy restaurateurs are looking to advertise inside the frame. The New York Times looks at branding efforts, with a shout-out to Whitechapel's garnish sticks.

Happy 500th Birthday to the German Purity Law
Via the NYT, the Reinheitsgebot has made German beer what it is, although some people think it's made that country's beer industry fusty. What do you think?

  • 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.'"
