Woodward's Garden.

MISSION—It's (sadly) official: after 22 years in the Mission, Woodward's Garden is now officially closed. Chef-owners Dana Tommasino and Margie Conard are, as promised last month, on the hunt for a new space; no word yet on what the restaurant will become. [Inside Scoop]

DOGPATCH—Proving that two new cafes are better than one, Dignita, which just opened inside new mid-Market food court The Hall, has opened another location this week, in Dogpatch coworking space Invention Hub (2225 3rd St.) Like The Hall's version, it serves coffee and pastries. [EaterWire]

CIVIC CENTER—Celebrate Oktoberfest tomorrow night at the SF Cooking School, where Master Cicerone Rich Higgins will discuss the ins and outs of pairing beer and German food. For $175, drinkers will learn how to make their own soft pretzels, schnitzel, and German chocolate cupcakes, and find out what to drink them with. [EaterWire]

SOMA—Also on the Oktoberfest tip is Bar Agricole, which is hosting an Oktoberfest on their patio on Sunday night. For $50, partiers get unlimited sausages, oysters, and other snacks, plus a free cocktail or beer; additional drinks will be sold at the bar. It goes down from 5-9 pm. [EaterWire]
