BEERWIRE — Those who miss Chris Kronner from his Bar Tartine days should take note of a forthcoming Beer and Soul dinner on August 13 at Boot & Shoe Service (3308 Grand) that features Kronner as guest chef. "The Triple White Sage Release Celebration and Brewmaster's Dinner" pairs the latest offerings from Craftsman Brewing Company with a three-course meal that includes items like squab sausage and oven-roasted sweetbreads. There are three seatings beginning at 6:30 p.m. and tickets ($65) are available here. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION — Taylor's Tonics, makers of Chai Cola, plans to open The Fizzary (2949 Mission), "an urban menagerie of soda," on August 16. The inventory is said to include 700 unusual sodas as well as old-timey candies. [Tablehopper]
