COMING ATTRACTIONS — Grand Cafe (501 Geary) hosts the final "Misfit Dinner" of the year from December 20-24. Chef and whole animal specialist Alicia Jenish will highlight à la carte goose dishes ($8-26) such as winter vegetable and goose consomme, goose leg confit served with stuffed savoy cabbage, and goose roulade with prune and caramelized onion pudding.

EMPIRES — Adriano Paganini, owner of nine restaurants in the city including Beretta, Lolinda, Starbelly, and the growing Super Duper, gets an expanded profile. He's called "the anti-snob of the San Francisco food scene." [San Francisco Magazine]

BEERWIRE — Anchor Distilling Co. has a swanky new tasting room. It's a penthouse suite on the top of the building accented with wood and bright bursts of yellow, and appears to be private and VIP only. [7X7]
