NOPA/WESTERN ADDITION—The ongoing plans for outdoor seating at La Urbana have hit a snag, as a group calling themselves the Grove Residents' Rights Resource (yup, GRRR) is protesting the restaurant's permit. Their grievances include "drunks screaming over the blaring music" to "employees and customers using our front stoops as their private smoking area, and arguing or getting high right under our bedroom windows, late into the night." This could spell trouble for that long-promised rooftop deck. [Hoodline]

NORTH BEACH—Pizza deals are proliferating across the Tony Gemignani empire: Capo's is now offering a "Happier Hour" (5-6 pm daily) with a slice of deep-dish and a soda, PBR, or shot of whiskey for $8 all-in, while down the street, Tony's Slice House is dishing up $2 cheese slices at lunch on Tuesdays (12-4 pm).

MISSIONBi-Rite's Holiday Wine Blitz is up and running at the Mission location, with 20% off any and all mixed cases of wine. The promotion ends December 15th, so get in your holiday shopping now. [EaterWire]

SILICON VALLEY—Over in Redwood City, Donato Enoteca is gearing up for their annual Enoteca 100 tasting, featuring over 100 Italian wines paired with everything from porchetta to wild-boar bruschetta to fancy prosciutto and cheeses. If you want to get in on the action, tickets are $55. [EaterWire]
