WINE COUNTRY - The NY Times has this piece in the Travel section on Sonoma’s low-key charms, counting subversive bumper stickers that read "Kill Your TV" amongst them. Andrew Mariani's Scribe Winery, The Girl and the Fig and its new off-shoot Estate, Redwood Hill Farm, Quivira Vineyards & Winery, Hawley Tasting Room & Gallery, the new Francis Ford Coppola Winery and Santé at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa are among the epicurean highlights.

THE SHUTTER - Paradise Lounge at 1501 Folsom Street has shuttered temporarily because the ABC suspended its liquor license for unclear reasons. They'll reopen on September 6th, so do yourself a favor and don't look at the Web site until then because it makes no mention of the closure. [SFoodie via GrubStreet]

THE SHUTTER EXTRA - The Petite Deli in North Beach will be closed through September because the owner is going on a vacation in Korea. [SFWTW]

OAKLAND - There's a great great deal of coverage out there on the Eat Real Festival kicking off in Jack London Square today. You can also follow the festival Twitter feed for updates. We especially enjoyed this interview with festival founder Anya Fernald in The Washington Post, including mention of plans to expand to Los Angeles next year. [Various]
