HOLIDAYS — Comal (2020 Shattuck) is hosting a Mexican Seder for Passover on March 25-26. Expect dishes like jalapeno matzoh balls, lamb barbacoa quesadilla, and adobo beef brisket; snag tickets ($60) here. [EaterWire]

BOOZEWIRE — Hog & Rocks (3431 19th St.) has launched a "Pimp My Old Fashioned" cocktail menu with modern remixes like The Kingston (Appleton Estate 12-Year Rum, sugarcane syrup, and chocolate and orange bitters) and The Oaxaca (Tres Agaves tequila, del Maguey 'minero' mezcal, agave gum syrup, and grapefruit bitters). Sadly, Xzibit is not going to be the host. [EaterWire]
