STOW LAKE - After delays and legal complications galore, Stow Lake Boathouse reopens today with 42 new electric boats and a new menu. The planned sit-down cafe, however, is still two to three months out. In the meantime, food will be brought in from Let's Be Frank, American Box and La Cocina. In an effort to keep it real—at least ostensibly—consultant Frank Klein has decided the boathouse's hallmark kitschy pink popcorn will stick around. [Chron]

POP-UPS It wouldn't be a full day of news without something new on the pop-up front, and today we bring you the Haven preview pop-up that shall be at Plum once a week from now on. Future Haven chef Kim Alter will be showing her menu tricks, Scott Beattie will be on drinks, and pastry chef Matt Tinder will also be in full effect. The fun starts this coming Monday, and will continue weekly on Tuesdays after that. [ISSF]

Bluxome%20Winery.jpgNOW OPEN - Another thing to be aware of is Bluxome Street Winery (53 Bluxome St.), a new SoMa winery and event space that LiveSoma says has been open for just about a month. The tasting room allows drinkers to peek into the functional winery area, which sounds pretty cool at the outset. Drop a note below or over the EaterWire if you visit. [LiveSoma]

NOW OPEN EXTRA - Madame Tablehopper calls attention to the third new Mexican restaurant in wine country, besides La Condesa and Mateo's Cocina Latina. Cielito Lindo (1142 Main St.) has taken over the former Annaliên in downtown Napa with a Jalisco-themed menu and agave wine margaritas. [Tablehopper]

COMING ATTRACTIONS - St. George Spirits is creating three Halloween cocktails for this event thrown by Epicuring at the Hangar One distillery on Sunday. Also included in the $30 price tag is a tour of the distillery, one buddha's hand citrus and a batch of finger limes to take home. [EaterWire]
