THE BRUNCH BUNCH - For a little over a week now, Oakland's Doña Tomás has been serving Mexican-style brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Huevos rancheros, poached eggs with carnitas hash, cinnamon churros with Mexican chocolate sauce and bloody Marias are all on the menu. Plus, the patio is open. Photo teaser here. [EaterWire]

BOOZE WIRE - So caught up to modern times, Michael Mina has introduced a special, limited edition, by-request-only dark rum cocktail, via the Twitter. Who's in for Happy Rabbits? [@MichaelMinaSF]

THE TY FLO - Around the time Tyler Florence hired Jeremy Fox, he also brought on New York uber GM Corey Lane. Well yesterday, GrubStreet passed on an anonymous tip that Lane has followed in Fox's path. He left the building. Word is, Rotisserie & Wine's GM is also out. Sounds like hiring season in Ty-Flo Land. [GrubStreet]

ANNIVERSARIES - The hallowed Jardinière will ring in its 14th year in business next week. To celebrate, they're dusting off some old recipes from 1997, the year the restaurant opened, to create a special fixed price menu, available on Monday (9/12). The dinner starts with lobster strudel, ends with apple tart and wine pairings are included in the $55 price tag. Traci Des Jardins will be there, in the flesh, to celebrate. [EaterWire]

TAX DOLLARS AT WORK - Remember when the Supes proposed lowering the $2000 entertainment permit fee for restaurants and cafes? They unanimously approved the proposal today. The new permit costs a mere $385, which should theoretically increase the amount of live music you here out there considerably. We shall see. [Examiner]

EXPANSIONWIRE - Off the Grid reveals its latest growth plans to The Feast. New San Francisco lunch markets are on the way and Off the Grid Marin might be born as soon as early October. [The Feast]
