UPPER HAIGHTAs if last year's truck fire wasn't bad enough, Uppercasing brings word that Bacon Bacon may also lose their conditional-use permit for their brick-and-mortar space on Frederick Street. Though the technical complaint is having two related businesses (the Ashbury Market next door shares the space), owner Jim Angelus says that's just a ruse for neighbors who aren't happy about cell-phone chatter and stoop-sitting from the restaurant's customers. If you're interested in supporting Bacon Bacon or giving feedback, they're holding an open chat session next Tuesday, February 12, at 7 p.m. [Uppercasing]

WESTERN ADDITION—Haighteration has photos and info on the cool new heated gazebo Sharon Ardiana's Ragazza just added to their back patio. It's an electric umbrella made by an Australian company that produces radiant heat, meaning that diners will be able to stay toasty without getting overheated while inside the plastic canopy. The gazebo seats 18 and can be rented for private parties with a $50 per person food and drink minimum. [Haighteration]

LOWER HAIGHT—If last night's Beyonce halftime show didn't leave you feeling empowered enough about your single-lady status, Maven's Kate Bolton is here to help with a Valentine's class in sabering champagne. For $75, you and your "she-wolf pack" (their words, not ours) will get a bottle, a sword, and all the guidance you need. Bolton will also offer three special cocktails for the occasion. [EaterWire]

CASTROBlush Wine Bar has introduced a new brunch menu on weekends (viewable here), featuring dishes like pigs in a blanket, challah French toast, and six types of crepes. In keeping with the customs of the Castro, they'll also hook you up with $9 bottomless mimosas, though they promise an atmosphere that's "an escape from the loud, fist bumping brunches of the neighborhood."
