Beer Week Begins, More Bocuse Nights, Berkeley Upset Again

THE MISSION—Tomorrow marks the beginning of SF Beer Week. The rundown and complete list of participants can be enjoyed here, but the coolest thing might Humphry Slocombe's role: they are working with 25 Bay Area Breweries to make an ice cream for each. At the shop, they will feature six different ice cream beer flavors at a time and will offer "Beer Flights" all week long (or until it runs out). Brace. [EaterWire]

SAN FRANCISCO—We've mentioned the Patterson/Kinch dinner at Coi and La Folie's dinner, but next week will see even more special fundraising dinners for the Bocuse d'Or cause. On Monday, Jardiniere is holding a $55 four-courser, but the bigger news is that on February 22nd, Michael Mina and Timothy Hollingsworth—last year's Bocuse d'Or USA representative and current chef at a little place called the French Laundry—will be combining forces at attending RN74 for a special dinner ($250 inc. wine). Update: Or not: RN74 Jason Berthold will be in the kitchen that night. The other chefs will be just be attending. [EaterWire]

BERKELEY—The NYT's Bay Area Blog takes note of the pastrami crisis currently underway at Saul's Deli, where Team Berkeley is trying to tackle the dilemma of organic vs. authentic. Even the Pollanator himself—a Saul's regular—is getting involved, because it's Berkeley, after all. [NYT]
