Dangerous Booze Shuts Down Streets; Little Baobab's Return

Plus: Sugarfoot Grits pops up, and Souvla's cooking class.


SOUTH BEACH—A "suspicious...wet and leaky" package shut down traffic near AT&T Park today, so the SFPD could investigate. The package was deemed "not hazardous," and the area has since been reopened by SFPD, whose spokesperson confirmed that it was actually a broken bottle of Scotch sent to an executive in the building. Police remain on the lookout for thousands more "wet and leaky" packages, in the form of intoxicated Giants fans hitting the streets after tonight's playoff game. [SFist]

MISSION—Looks like Little Baobab is on the mend. According to Capp Street Crap, the restaurant, which has been under construction since a fire nearly destroyed it in May 2013, will reopen as a "Senegalese fast food" restaurant, and has applied for an outdoor seating permit. Hopefully diners will be enjoying a variety of wraps, crepes and fresh juices en plein air, before the year is over. [Capp Street Crap]

LOWER HAIGHT—SF Southerners, your cheesy, gritty prayers have been answered. Sugarfoot Grits, operated by North Carolina native Stephanie Fields, is popping up at Wing Wings on weekends. Because no one in SF serves "real grits", Fields is serving up cheese grits, fried eggs, bacon and greens that would make any Southern mama proud. Catch her from 8-11 am, every Saturday in October. [Hoodline]
