NORTH BEACH—Last call for Tosca Cafe in its original incarnation has been sounded a few times, but this is finally it: Jeannette Etheredge and the house cappuccinos are going dark on Sunday, until the cafe returns in the fall as April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman's first West Coast venture.

THE AIRWAVES—This is charming: Oakland-based rapper Lyrics Born (known in regular life as Tom Shimura) was one of the three panelists on tonight's episode of Check Please! Bay Area. The trio spotlighted Radius in SOMA, Hunan Home's in Chinatown, and Guerrilla Cafe in Berkeley; Shimura chose that last one. Also, there is a photo of him signing Leslie Sbrocco's foot, so we're guessing everyone had plenty of wine. You can watch the episode right here. [Bay Area Bites via SFoodie]

TENDERLOIN—Lots of folks will be streaming into town for this weekend's ArtMRKT event, as well as the affiliated ArtPad gallery showing that will take over all the rooms of the Phoenix Hotel with cool new work. If you're stopping by to scope out the art, consider staying for brunch or dinner at Chambers: they're offering 15% off to those with an ArtPad ticket. Brunch runs 10:30 am-2:30 pm Saturday and Sunday, and dinner is 6-11 pm Friday and Saturday. [EaterWire]

SOMA—Next Sunday, B Bar is hosting a special Sunday Supper in honor of Memorial Day, with a whole North Carolina-style pig roast, corn on the cob, beans, watermelon salad, and plenty of beer. The view over Yerba Buena Gardens is always nice on a warm day, and the current forecast is 70 and sunny, so that's looking possible. Tickets are $25; booze sold separately. [EaterWire]
