The Kingfish Pulls Up Stakes; In-N-Out Coffee Lawsuit

TEMESCAL—It's good news/bad news at beloved Temescal dive the Kingfish. Bad news first: it's going to have to close after 92 years, to make room for condos. Now, the good: pending city approval, it's moving right across the street, quite literally uprooting the building and placing it on the new site. The move should happen in the fall, and the new space will gain a small patio as a bonus. [EBX]

OAKLAND—A woman is suing an Oakland In-N-Out for failing to call 911 after an employee handed her a coffee without a protective sleeve, which was so hot that she dropped and spilled it all over her thighs, causing a three-day hospitalization and severe scarring. The employee apparently claimed at the time that she was forbidden to call an ambulance by company policy. [Chron]
