AWARDS & DISTINCTIONS - On Friday the Court of Master Sommeliers added six new members to its prestigious group of 112 nationwide. Four of them are locals to add to your radar: Dustin Wilson of RN74, Jason Heller of Bond Estates in Oakville Matthew Stamp of The French Laundry and Brian McClintic of Treasury Wine Estates in Napa. All of them will join the existing 20+ Master Sommeliers currently in the Bay Area and Wine Country. [EaterWire]

MARINA - As Pizza Orgasmica deals with some hooligans in Marin, they look to expand in the Marina into the neighboring nail shop. This would double their seating and allow them to become a full-service restaurant, which could then get even rowdier for late night. This goes before the Planning Department on Thursday.
