Mimi's Royal Graphic Novel; La Cocina Gala & Auction

OAKLAND—New graphic novel Over Easy, from cartoonist Mimi Pond, details her '70s coming of age working the counter at the long-running Mama's Royal Cafe.

THE MISSIONLa Cocina's annual gala is just around the corner, and while tickets to the dinner portion are sold out, supporters can still attend Monday's cocktail reception, featuring wine from A16, drinks from Rye on the Road, and snacks from Delfina, La Ciccia, Pican, and more. Or bid on an item in their killer online auction, with offerings like a private dinner with Ashley Christensen and Traci des Jardins, dinner for 4 from Melissa Perello, and pizza-making lessons for 12 at A16 Rockridge.
