PACIFIC HEIGHTS—So apparently, rumors of a crab shortage have either been greatly exaggerated or Whole Foods is just livin' large on Franklin Street, because we have word that yesterday evening, Dungeness crab legs were going for free as samples (pictured). Oh, to live in Pac Heights and shop at Whole Foods. Or maybe Whole Foods just had to get rid of some crabs near the spoilage point because no one wanted to buy crabs. [EaterWire]
SOMA—The next generation of seasonal menus has arrived at Townsend Street newbie South Food + Wine Bar. Perhaps the biggest news is that the lunch menu's popular venison burger has been added to the dinner menu. In fact, all three menus have been expanded across the board, so more Aussie options for you. [EaterWire Inbox]
BERKELEY—Fourth Street is now home to a Wine.com retail store, according to the SF Business Times.
