EAST BAY - At long last, Oakland has gone ahead and put together a restaurant week; and it starts on Monday! A bit more freestyle than its SF sib, restaurants decide if they want to do $20, $30 or $40 fixed-price menus and some of them add tasting events to the mix. Find out who's doing what here.

CIVIC CENTER - Since Gayle Pirie and John Clark have carved such a nice rep for Foreign Cinema's brunch, we weren't surprised to see their hot dog joint, Show Dogs will start serving breakfast Monday. Now take a look at them apples. [EaterWire]
WESTERN ADDITION - On Tuesday, Mojo Bicycle Café does Supper Club again. It's 3 courses: chicory soup with poached egg, Death & Taxes braised short ribs or Gruyere, shiitake and barley stuffed poblano pepper, vanilla bread pudding with Mexican hot chocolate; for $21. Reservations recommended.
OFF THE GRID - SFoodie is really keeping our fingers on the heart beat of OTG this week. "Metal-slash-punk head" Shellie's Brass Knuckle will be bringing several ambitious sounding sandwiches this Saturday. Tru Sake will start a food truck sake pairing program from nearby Jackie's Vinoteca and Café. And that controversial Blue Bottle coffee cart? Not dead yet. [SFoodie]
