Mission Burritos in Bangkok; The Bay's Best Dive Bars

Plus: Wesburger revamps Lookout's menu, and a breast-cancer fundraiser.


THAILAND—You can get a Mission burrito from a "taco truck" in the basement of a mall in Bangkok that has signs for Valencia and Guerrero Streets around it, because globalization is crazy like that sometimes. [Capp Street Crap]

MARIN/SILICON VALLEY—San Francisco was robbed in Thrillist's accounting of the 21 best dive bars in America, but two spots from around the area, Portola Valley's biker-beloved Alpine Inn and Larkspur's charmingly old-school Silver Peso, made the cut. [Thrillist]

SOMA—Breast Cancer Action's annual Action Speaks Louder Than Pink fundraising dinner goes down tomorrow night at Terra Gallery, featuring the culinary talents of Flora, Hillside Supper Club, Millennium, and The Plant Cafe Organic. Tickets are $125.[EaterWire]

CASTRO—Wesburger's Wes Rowe is shaking up the menu at Castro standby Lookout, with a new bar bites selection highlighting Tex-Mex style queso, fried chicken tacos, and fried pound cake shots soaked in booze. To accompany the new fare, Michael Breshears has rejiggered the cocktail offering, using fresh juices and housemade syrups in concoctions like the Kentucky Tea Dance (bourbon, Earl Grey syrup, lemon, bergamot bitters). The whole shebang launches tomorrow night. [EaterWire]
