UNION SQUARE—Did you know the Sir Francis Drake hotel has preserved the Prohibition-era secret liquor storage room in their basement? Our compatriots over at Curbed SF concluded their Hotels Week by getting a looksee. [Curbed SF]

NORTH BEACH—If you've got out-of-towners coming in or were looking to celebrate something big, be warned: Coi is closing for a week, beginning Sunday. They'll return July 9 with a dinner honoring wine legend Terry Thiese. [@coirestaurant]

SOMADucca, the once-ballyhooed Italian spot at the Westin, is now an exceedingly overpriced comfort-food spot with the goofy backwards name of MaSo. [Inside Scoop]

NOPA/WESTERN ADDITION—Many of you may have wondered about the burger bona fides of Wes Rowe, who gave us such a thorough critique of them this past Burger Week. See for yourself tonight at Workshop, where he'll be serving up his take on Jack in the Box's Hot Mess, called, appropriately, the Hot Wes. It won the SF Burger Brawl earlier this month, so it's none too shabby. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION—We love a good funny/mean sidewalk standee message, and Gestalt has delivered. [Uptown Almanac]
