Epic Tries to Stay Dry Along the Bay; New Thursday Vendors

THE EMBARCADERO—The rain tried to take its toll on Epic Roasthouse but the big waterfront restaurant wants to let everyone know that it is ready for business tonight: "We bailed EPIC out from underwater TWICE today!! Come and visit the perfect WATERfront restaurant. How about a 26 ounce Porterhouse?" [Twitter[

FERRY BUILDING—According to 7x7, Absinthe pastry whiz Luis Villavelazquez is joining the fray of vendors at the Ferry Building's Thursday farmers market. More deets are over there, but know that he'll be selling bomboloni, cookies and cupcakes. [7x7]

MEDIA—The idea that Yelp users aren't all that discerning, a fact that was previously only blatantly obvious, is now backed up by statistics. As it turns out, restaurants receive a four or five star rating 67% of the time! Yelp's reasoning: forcing people to actually read reviews ups traffic. [Gawker via Eater NY]
