BERKELEY—The Bay Area is getting its very first hot-sauce store this weekend, as Heat opens its doors. Owned by adorable young couple Dylan Keenen and Becky Gibbons, the shop will feature 200+ hot sauces from producers around the world, including 40 "superhot" sauces guaranteed to demolish your remaining taste buds. They'll also stock spicy nuts, chocolates, and candies, and offer crushed and powdered peppers for cooking. [Berkeleyside Nosh]

POLK GULCH—The folks over at Dishcrawl are doing a special beer-centric benefit for Meals on Wheels a week from Sunday, with stops for 12 five-ounce pours at six different bars around the Polk Street circuit. Tickets are a mere $29, and food isn't included, so you'll probably want to budget for something to soak up all that brew. [EaterWire]

WALNUT CREEK— Walnut Creek's been waiting a long time for the magic of Ike's Place to rain down upon them, and they're finally getting their wish: the sandwich purveyor plans to open there this Tuesday or Wednesday. Ike Shehadeh is just waiting on his final fire inspection. [Diablo Dish]

OAKLAND—And while we're on the subject of things in SF that the East Bay is coveting, Kronnerburger will be making its first foray into the 510 tomorrow night, with a stop at the Creative Growth studio for Art Murmur. (As previously discussed, he'll eventually be opening up an outlet in Oakland as well.) A $30 ticket buys you one of Chris Kronner's beefy masterpieces, fries, a drink ticket, and the opportunity to check out a performance by local "cosmic dance" group Shock. More info here.
