WINE COUNTRY — Epicurean retreats in Napa and Sonoma are on the indulgent rise. There's even a bit of a sneaky way to have dinner in the private dining room at The French Laundry, but you've still got to have several grand on hand. [ISSF]

LEGAL DEPT — Supervisor Scott Wiener is looking at six outmoded food laws that he'd like to repeal, including one that would ease up on trying to prevent bars like Shotwell's (3349 20th St.) from allowing vendors such as the Tamale Lady inside. There's also a community meeting on the Mission liquor license ban tonight at 6 PM at Plaza Adelante (2301 Mission). [ISSF; Mission Loc@l]

BOOZE — Virginia Miller has some tips on "who to drink" this summer, offering recipes and playlists from local bartenders from the likes of Smuggler's Cove, Range, Hotsy Totsy Club, and Comstock Saloon.
