BERKELEYA new pizzeria has opened its doors in Berkeley: Pizza Moda, helmed by Jeff Davis, who ran the space back when it was Fellini. (It was most recently Divino.) Pizzaiolo and Boot & Shoe Service vet Colin Etezadi consulted on the pies, and any pie can be made gluten-free. There are also some specials intended for neighborhood folks, like a Tuesday Wednesday-night wine deal where any bottle on the list is $15. See the full menu here. [Inside Scoop]

THE MISSION—Though St. Vincent cicerone Sayre Piotrkowski is mainly focused on local brews, he's making an exception for pioneering Belgian beer titans Vanberg & Dewulf, whose owners, Don Fineberg and Wendy Littlefield, will be on-site for a pairing dinner next Monday, April 8. The $65, five-course meal includes dishes like whitefish roe paired with a lambic-kombucha blend and quail with Vicaris Tripel Gueuze. St. Vincent's wine-shop hours also continue this Saturday afternoon, with a $30 tasting flight of six affordable Burgundies. [EaterWire]

THE MISSIONThe Monk's Kettle is welcoming Maine's Allagash Brewing, as well as brewer Rob Tod, for another special beer-pairing dinner on Wednesday, April 10. They'll have some of the brewery's very rare sours, like FV13, on hand, as well as classics like the White and Curieux, paired with dishes by Adam Dulye like braised and grilled octopus and rabbit porchetta. Tickets are $115 plus tax and tip; more info here. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION—SF-based literature and music mag Radio Silence is throwing a cool release party on Tuesday, with a reading from New York Times Magazine writer Jon Mooallem, a solo set from Rogue Wave's Zach Rogue, Georgian food from Satellite Republic, Magnolia beer, Sutton Cellars wine, and cocktails from newly-emancipated Alembic bar manager Daniel Hyatt. It's pretty much too cool for school, which is why it's nearly sold out, so act fast. Tickets are $40 and available here. [EaterWire]
