SOMA—As pointed out by Camper English, round two of the Fifth Floor's monthly liquid pairings game will take place this Wednesday. Last month's winner Emily Wines (Fifth Floor), Craig Wathen (City Beer Store) and Daniel Hyatt (Alembic) will compete to find the best booze pairings for a food menu by Jennie Lorenzo. Tickets are $125. [EaterWire]

TOP CHEF UNIVERSE—Last week's bridal shower ep was the last dose of Gail Simmons for a while, as everyone's favorite judge will step away for the rest of the season to plan her wedding. She'll make a return for the season finale, but until then, it's time for some new judges. [Bravo via AB]

WASHINGTON DC—Recession or not, the next location of the continually-sprawling Michael Mina empire is slated to open this week in the Four Seasons in Georgetown. It's called Bourbon Steak, and between the dining room and bar, boasts about 180 seats. And just for good measure, each table gets complimentary duck-fat fries and potato-and-truffle focaccia.
