Weaver's Coffee & Tea Opens in the Castro; Fish and Chips at Wing Wings

Plus: More bubble tea for the Inner Sunset, and Gather turns five.


CASTRO— The Castro coffee takeover is almost complete with today's soft-opening of Weaver's Coffee & Tea (2301 Market). Starting today, stop in for a reasonably priced coffee ($1.80) from master roaster John Weaver's beans, plus pastries from Cafe Madeleine. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 5am-midnight; Friday, 5am-11pm; Saturday, 5am-10pm; Sunday, 6am-9pm. [Hoodline]

LOWER HAIGHT— Tomorrow's drizzly weather is the perfect backdrop for some crispy fish and chips from Batter by the Bay's pop-up at Wing Wings. Virgil's Sea Room co-owner and Irish lass Gillian Fitzgerald will be serving up fried treats like battered black pudding, chicken hearts and pickles, and she'll fry any sweet you want for a $2 charitable donation. Get out your wellies and head on over; she'll be frying from 5-9pm. [EaterWire]

INNER SUNSET—The Sunset's slew of bubble tea joints will be joined by a new project in the old Irving Variety Store space. After the shop cut its 53-year run short last year, the space has sat empty. Now it's undergoing renovations, and will house the non-profit San Francisco Women's Art group on one side, with the bubble tea lounge on the other. [Hoodline]

BERKELEYGather is celebrating five years of local, sustainable and vegetarian-friendly dining tonight, with a special a la carte menu and popular cocktails from past years. Guests receive complimentary glass of bubbly, and a portion of the evening's proceeds will go to the Women's Earth Alliance, which supports female farmers. [EaterWire]
