THE HAIGHT—Haight Street elder statesman El Balazo will be expanding on its current digs; the remodel will come in the form of an outdoor patio and dining area in the back of the restaurant. Smokers and/or al fresco burritoeaters, rejoice. [EaterWire]

NORTH BEACH—The Planning Department has postponed decisions on a pair of North Beach items, including the ballyhooed alcohol ban proposal. The other item marked for continuance? Wait for it ... another wine bar. With a preliminary DBA of Vino Divino—genius, right?—the owners are seeking conditional use to put in a combo wine bar and retail shop at 507 Columbus. Have fun with that one, Vino Divino. This is exactly what those neighborhood associations warned us about. [EaterWire]
