CHOCOLATE - If you'd like to put yourself into a chocolate- and wine-induced coma this weekend. Or if you just really like chocolate, remember the San Francisco Chocolate Salon happens Sunday tickets are still available. [EaterWire]

WINE COUNTRY - When North Beach Argentine restaurant El Raigon closed, there was talk of a Wine Country future.

Leading up to the opening, chef Jeffrey Addington's meats can be sampled at the temporary outdoor grill they've got stoked up in the courtyard at Cornerstone Sonoma. [ISSF]
