Front Porch Adds Cocktails, Miss Pearl's Flooded, More

THE ABCS - Deep Mission Southern food restaurant The Front Porch just got a liquor license. It's officially time to drink a sazerac (or a mint julep) with that fried chicken. [Tablehopper]

DISASTER WIRE - Unfortunately, a truck hit a fire hydrant outside Miss Pearl's Jam House in Jack London Square, and the joint is temporarily closed due to flood damage. We'll let you know when they're back up and running. [Tablehopper]

ICE CREAM - Smitten (432 Octavia) will offer its "space-themed" moon pie flavor to celebrate the San Francisco Public Library's annual One City One Book: Packing for Mars by Mary Roach. The "first handful" of folks who buy a scoop or two of the new flavor (marshmallow ice cream with chocolate and graham cracker cookie chunks), will get a free copy of the book. The offer starts at 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and at noon on Saturday. [EaterWire]

CATERING WIRE - Absinthe's talented chef duo of Adam Keough and Bill Corbett are offering a new catering option for the office or your next dinner party: everything from a classic reuben to linguine with shrimp to pecan pie. See the full menu and contact info here. [EaterWire]

ON THE OUTS - GrubStreet has word that 31-year-old John's Ocean Beach Café is on the chopping block as a mixed use building and expansive "open air market" attempts to raze the business and several others surrounding it. Now would be the time to rally in it's defense if you're feeling inclined to do so. [GrubStreet]
