FILLMORE -- Hoppin' Marcia discovers that the eatery that was thought to be coming together as The Library from the team behind farmerbrown is now called The Social Study and is the project of former farmerbrown manager Harmony Braga. She'll have items such as Four Barrel coffee, sandwiches, and snacks like chocolate-covered bacon, and is calling the opening date at January 3. Frighteningly good hip-hop and funk DJ Doc Fu will spin on Fridays. [Tablehopper]

SOMA -- MizHop also has the skinny on Sofa, an "underground bar with a speakeasy style," Stephen King video visuals, and a small plates menu in the basement of Bossa Nova, and The Grand, a new nightclub rising next to Orson with a blinding disco ball made of 30,000 LED lights. [Tablehopper]

YOUNTVILLE -- Inside Scoop catches wind of the next restaurant incarnation at the hotel Bardessono. It will be called Lucy, and is due in late January. Spruce-ups include a wall painted to mimic flowing water. Mmm, Napalicious. [ISSF]

Also, Yountville itself will host its third annual Moveable Feast at the top of 2012, showcasing multi-course meals and deals at area restaurants and wineries from January 1-February 29. While some of the offers seem like standard fare, one can check out Lucy once it's open and also take advantage of freebies like a cheese and charcuterie tasting for two at Girard Winery and a candle light chocolate and wine pairing for two at Cosentino Winery.

THE OTHER WINE COUNTRY -- Sonoma doesn't want to be left out, so consider the 20th annual Winter Wineland on January 14-15 as another competitive option for your daytripping. 140 winery members along Wine Road shall be offering tastings, with a bargain $5 admission for designated drivers.
