Cha Cha Cha's History; Half Moon Bay's Typhoon Relief

MISSIONFind out why Cha Cha Cha was "the first bar in the Mission to get gentrified" and learn all about its storied history as old-school dive bar McCarthy's with this Carl Nolte column. Tidbit: it was a "soda fountain" that served "refreshments" until the day Prohibition was repealed, at which point it immediately began serving alcohol. Nothing suspicious about that. [SFGate]

HALF MOON BAYHalf Moon Bay Brewing Co. is hosting a special fundraiser for victims of Typhoon Haiyan tonight. From 5pm onwards, "Pampered by the Chef Night" means free Filipino bites like lumpia, adobo chicken lettuce wraps, and pancit Canton, with all drink proceeds and donations going to The World Food Programme.

HAYES VALLEYLongtime pizza stop Go Getters Pizza is moving out of its current Gough Street location to become roommates with Don Agapito's (neé Go Getters Deli). The move is less than a block, but it opens up some restaurant real estate in the burgeoning mid-Market area, so look out for action at the pizza joint's former address. [Hayeswire]

INNER/OUTER RICHMONDTwo changes are afoot out Richmond District way, with new Japanese and Korean izakaya called Joo Mak taking over the Sushi Tani space on Geary and Funston, and new sushi place Yoi opening in the former Drunken Sushi location on Clement and 24th Avenue. [Tablehopper]
