EaterWire: New GM at Bacar, New Boccalone Items

SOMA—More personnel shuffles at Bacar: two months after he replaced the departed Mickey Clevenger as general manager, Vegas import Rob Wimpfheimer is now out too. We're told that the restaurant has named Gerardo Acevedo as the replacement. [EaterWire, previously]

FERRY BUILDINGBoccalone has released a pair of new items of interest: pork butter (pork renderings from lard, with garlic and rosemary) and—wait for it—truffle mortadella (made in Oakland with black Italian truffles; only available during the holiday season). Everyone's getting into the truffle spirit. [EaterWire]

THE WINE WORLD—The guy from Caddyshack II is the latest celebrity to hop on the local winemaking bandwagon: "Dan Aykroyd, the former "Saturday Night Live" comedian and actor, is just about to release his 2007 Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon - his first California wine project. He teamed up with DeLoach Vineyards' winemaking team and has added the Sonoma County wines to his Discovery Series. He plans to put the bottles on California shelves by Christmas." [Chron]
