NOB HILL—It's that time of the year, and the Big 4 Restaurant has released its always-enjoyable
Big Wild Game Week menu. It takes place in mid-May, and as usual, you've got a fair share of exotic meats, like piranha, Himalayan yak, deer, antelope and something called a wapiti (google it). [EaterWire]
BERKELEY—Facing a plethora of vacant storefronts, Berkeley is doing its best to woo business. Take note, prospective restaurateurs: "On the contrary, the city of Berkeley has embraced an aggressive campaign to make downtown retail space more attractive to merchants, expediting design review for minor zoning issues, approving building permit fee deferrals for development, and considering modification of the zoning ordinance to help restaurants, quick-service joints, department stores and grocery stores set up shop more quickly."

AIRWAVES—This morning's hour-long radio segment featuring Marcia Gagliardi, Michael Bauer and Zagat's Meesha Halm is now online for your listening enjoyment. [KQED]
EASTER SPECIALS—For Easter Sunday, Bushi-Tei is offering a two-course brunch for $25, wherein Chef Waka will offer his normal brunch menu plus some holiday specials. For more Easter options, Zagat has a pretty good list of meals and deals. [EaterWire/Zagat]
