Joe's of Westlake Protests; Nopalito Disses HBO's "Ripoff"

DALY CITY—The employees of long-running Joe's of Westlake, which is being closed for a revamp from the Original Joe's family, aren't happy, saying they were denied severance pay or any other post-closure financial consideration. (Many have worked there for a decade or more.) They protested today outside the restaurant. [SF Business Times]

NOPA/WESTERN ADDITION—Also not thrilled: the folks at Nopalito, who were irritated by the huevos rancheros served in "tribute" to them at Tuesday's premiere of HBO's Looking. "Feeling more ripped off than honored," they wrote on Twitter. "We don't serve huevos rancheros. But we do cater." [@nopalitosf]
