OAKLANDJames and Caitlin Freeman have just signed the paperwork on their biggest Blue Bottle Coffee location to date, a 2,000-square-foot behemoth in the historic W.C. Morse building at 42nd and Broadway, which dates to 1902. In addition to coffee and cafe fare, they're hoping to turn the space into something of a home espresso-machine showroom and repair shop. An opening isn't expected until year's end. [Inside Scoop]

THE HALLS OF GOVERNMENT—If you're feeling that whole "4 a.m. last call" idea that the state government has been kicking around, get yourself over to this online petition before it closes up at the end of the day. They just crossed 5,000 supporters this afternoon, but more are always welcomed. [via @tablehopper]

THE MISSIONWes Rowe and Justin Navarro, who run The Galley (the pop-up in the back of Clooney's), are going full-on fine dining this weekend, with a special Belly Dinner at the recently vacated Lot 7 (which has become something of a pop-up haven). For a very reasonable $27, you'll get four courses of salmon belly, lamb bacon, pork belly, and pie with Jelly Belly ice cream; wine pairings by Vinyl Wine Bar's Kris Esqueda are an extra $20. Check out the full menu and get tickets here. [EaterWire]

ALAMEDA—Next Saturday, April 27, will be a blowout day of dining and boozing in Alameda, as Rock Wall Wine Company welcomes tons of area restaurants (including Pican, Lungomare, Tribune Tavern, Ozumo, and Asena) to serve bites alongside the 12 new wines they'll be releasing this year. The $40 admission includes food and wine pairings, cellar tours, live music, henna tattoos, a photo booth, and a chocolate tasting; get tickets here. [EaterWire]
