New, 1 comment

TENDERLOIN—A prospective return of Original Joe's remains murky at best, as tomorrow's Scoop reports that the deal with the Comet Club's Regan Caponi has fallen through. Caponi is still in the process to buy the site; if that happens, Original Joe's would have to look elsewhere for a possible rebirth. [Scoop]

NORTH BEACH—As of this afternoon, the new North Beach Pizza has been certified open on the corner of Union and Grant. The takeout window offerings will feature rotating specials by the slice. The old location, by the way, is now dark. [EaterWire, previously]

EARTH DAY FUN—Consider this a counterpoint to Carla Spartos' anti-slow movement rant this morning: a your disturbing graphic of the rate at which cows, pigs, and chickens are slaughtered in the US. [Herbiv via ENY]

FORT MASON—The annual Beer Fest is apparently sold out, but the Guardian has some alternatives for your drinking pleasure, namely, an evening at La Trappe and/or Monk's Kettle. [SFBG]

LONDON—It's outside of our normal beat, but seeing as how Fat Duck is the #2 restaurant in the world, it's noteworthy that Heston Blumenthal is rumored to be opening a new restaurant in London. [CS]
