Beretta Turns Five; Solbar Goes Asian

THE MISSION—It's hard to believe considering how much its owners have expanded their empire since then, but Beretta is turning a very youthful five years old a week from Monday, and throwing an April Fool's Day bash to celebrate. The $30 admission includes all-you-can-eat pizza and snacks and punch aplenty, and DJ Harold "Facemelter" Cabraic will spin. Tickets are here. [EaterWire]

CALISTOGA—It's your last week to catch chef Brandon Sharp's temporary shift into an Asian menu at Solbar Lounge in the Solage Calistoga, which will disappear on March 31. San Francisco mag's Sara Deseran raved about the offerings last week, including an Asian-style take on a Scotch egg with Chiang Mai sausage and chicken and ginger soup with shiitake won tons; Sharp also has a blog post up with photos of some of his test dishes.

CIVIC CENTER—The first SF branch of Petaluma-based Acre Coffee is now open in the SF Public Utilities Commission building at Polk and Golden Gate. The founder is Steve De Cosse, who opened Slow Club in the Mission back in 1989 and is working with chefs Britt Galler and Zoe Phillips to craft sustainable cafe fare. Coffee is from Four Barrel, pastries are from Bernal's Sandbox Bakery, and there's a selection of housemade granola, mustards, and jams; the company will get its own roastery in Santa Rosa later this year.

OAKLAND—Kitchener Oakland is hosting a delicious-sounding pop-up market next Wednesday themed around comfort food, with dishes like fried oyster po'boys from Romney Steele's forthcoming The Cook and Her Farmer and stroopwaffels from The Stroopie Gourmet. Linden Street Brewery will offer $2 pints, while Selection Massale will lead a free wine tasting. More info here. [EaterWire]
