If you're looking for the kind of hearty French fare that necessitates a post-brunch nap, look no further than Monsieur Benjamin, which is now dishing out poached eggs in red wine with duck confit, chicken croquettes with fried egg, bacon-apple brioche French toast, and other rib-sticking food on Saturdays and Sundays (11 am-2:30 pm). Bloody Marys with house hot sauce and a seafood plateau are on deck for hangover help. Here's the full menu. [EaterWire]

Also on the brunch tip is The Hall, which is set to debut its "Bottomless Blues Brunch" this weekend. Bottomless mimosas will go for a very reasonable $10.28 (in honor of their address), all the vendors will offer brunch specials, and a live blues band will perform each Sunday. (If you're looking for more music at The Hall, you can also help them out by signing their petition to the city for a more permanent performance license.) Hours are Saturday-Sunday, 10 am-2 pm.

Downtown boozehounds will be pleased to learn that Uno Dos Tacos has finally secured full liquor, and they've pulled out all the stops to offer a comprehensive program of 83 mezcales and tequilas, ranging from $8-45 per glass. (Here's the full list.) They're also offering cazuelas, which are terracotta pitchers of tequila, citrus juice, and grapefruit soda. And their happy hour (4-8 pm) now boasts $6 margaritas (available by the pitcher for $26) in addition to $4 beers and snacks for $5 and under. [EaterWire]

Over on Divis, Ziryab is also offering a new happy hour, with $7 cocktails, $5 beer and wine by the glass, and $4-5 bites like lamb meatballs, smoked trout flatbread, calamari, and marinated feta with grilled pita slices. It's offered Monday-Thursday from both 5-7 pm and 10 pm-close, making for a solid new late-night eating option in the corridor. [EaterWire]

Union Square's newish Klyde Cafe & Wine Bar is also doing the happy hour thing, with $5 wines by the glass and $25 bottles. With any wine purchase, diners also get a free small bite to try. [EaterWire]
