LOWER HAIGHTBaghdad Nights, the city's lone Iraqi restaurant, will sadly call it quits at the end of the month. The place had a loyal following who tried its best to rally the troops, but the eatery has been struggling for a while now. Sources at the restaurant say there's a chance that they might reopen in another location in six months or so, but come October, moving into the Haight Street space will be a sushi restaurant.

SOMA—Right down the block from the ballpark, a new froyo shop called Blush will make its debut tomorrow, and as is the norm with frozen yogurt mongers, there are freebies involved. And pretty serious ones too: Metreon tickets, iPhones, iTunes gift cards. and Warriors/49ers tickets. [FYG]

OAKLAND—For the first time in 50 years, Oakland has itself a brewery. The Linden Street Brewery opened earlier this summer and expects to increase its "steam" beer production to 5,000 barrels in the coming year. According to the article, a "handful of local bars and restaurants" are serving the brewery's suds, but only the Trappist is named. Anyone know the other venues? [Chron]
