CHRIS DALY WIRE - Earlier today, GrubStreet passed on news that San Francisco Supervisor-cum-bar owner Chris Daly secured a liquor license for the Daly's Dive Bar and Grill he failed to open earlier at the Buck Tavern (1655 Market Street). SF Appeal confirms this later, although Daly is still waiting for one signature to seal the deal, he'll have to keep the Buck Tavern name for the immediate future and he won't be able to remodel.

ON THE MARKET -This Craigslist ad says Digs Bistro and its liquor license are for sale in Berkeley for a whopping $110000. Yes, that's four zeros. [Craigslist]
