The spicy scent of habañero kielbasa lured Mission Mission into the long-shuttered Senses space last night to learn that a new wine bar, tenatively named B³, plans to open there in the next 10 days or so. And if the dot-commy name sticks it will reference their brown sugar bourbon bacon, already drawing crowds into the unopened business: "Seeking to be known as 'the winemaker’s speakeasy;' the idea is to offer hard-to-find ridiculously good quality vintages at prices that people can afford regularly." But with burgers, natch. For the record, if anything can save a space that has consistently sent concepts (see Watercress, Watergate) to their graves, it might be the magical coincidence of ground beef and grapes.
