Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem Soft-Opens, Rancho Gordo Drops Ferry Building Plans, Cotogna Kudos Continue, More

NOW SORT-OF OPEN - Uptown Almanac waltzes into the Mission's new Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem: "The grill is not yet opened, the video games aren't hooked up, and they got their supply of beer only yesterday (three bucks for a red-white-and-blue Bud), but it seems like it's an alright spot for those interested in loud electric music over the usual metal tracks played at nearby Bender's." [UA]

FERRY BUILDING - Although Steve Sando of Rancho Gordo heirloom beanery was thinking about going into one of the empties at the Ferry Building, he recently decided not to do it. It still might happen, just not immediately. In sort-of-related news, Sando is celebrating the release of his new book Heirloom Bean Grower's Guide next Thursday at Colonial Arts with tequila and tamales. Here's the flyer for the event.

ABC WIRE - SoMa's Xinh Bistro Lounge (680 8th St) is in the process of getting its beer and wine license. If all goes to plan, they should be launching a booze program and dinner service before the end of the month. [EaterWire]

PLANNING COMMISH - Asiento (2730 21st St.) was approved for DJ entertainment on Sunday through Thursday until 10 p.m. and weekends until midnight. Meanwhile, The Comet Club in the Marina is extending its music hours until 2 a.m. on Thursdays. [EaterWire]

TODAY IN BAUER - Among the facts Bauer passes on about recent dining experiences at Txoko, Bar Tartine and Nopa, what he has to say about Mike Tusk's Cotogna stands out: "Cotogna is doing some of the most interesting Italian food around these days; I can’t think of a better appetizer than one I had there recently — eggplant sformato on a creamy pool of burrata...However I couldn’t pass up...the porchetta, another favorite...I’ve eaten lots of versions of this dish, but I can’t think of one I’ve enjoyed more."

COMING ATTRACTIONS- JC Cellars in Oakland is pouring their not-yet-released 2009 Zin lineup Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at what is being dubbed a Beach Party sans sunscreen and sand. We're confused on the beach part, but if a non-beach party isn't your thing, maybe all you can eat Casey's Pizza, unreleased wine, or "DJ Brett spinnin' the beats" is. Tickets and more info on vendors/snacks/SWAG here. [EaterWire]
