EaterWire: No Subway on Market Yet, North Beach Issues

HAYES VALLEY—It doesn't look good for the Subway franchise trying to weasel its way into 1680 Market Street, which is on the northside of Market between Franklin and Gough (perhaps better known as the Zuni-CAV-Espetus block). The item will once again go in front of the Planning Commission during next week's meeting, and the preliminary recommendation has been updated to Disapproval. [EaterWire, previously]

NORTH BEACH—For the first time in history, there might be a meeting between the Police Commission and Entertainment Commission, because of North Beach's rowdy behavior: "The area covered by Central Station district — which has more than 100 bars, 300 restaurants, 350 beer and wine licenses and 45 liquor stores — sees an increased crowd on the weekends when people from all across the Bay Area come to party, according to Central's police chief, Capt. James Dudley ... Punishing clubs' bartenders who overserve is difficult, Dudley said. Club owners who cooperate with police and the Entertainment Commission, however, say they're at a disadvantage."

YOUNTVILLE—As we go into the weekend, please consider the following note passed along from Thomas Keller: "In honor of my father's memory, the Edward James Keller Scholarship Fund as been established to benefit deserving culinary students. If you would like to contribute, donations can be made out to the Edward James Keller Scholarship Fund and mailed to: The French Laundry, Attn: Thomas Keller, 6640 Washington Street, Yountville, CA, 94599."
