Uber Founder Joins Reservation Wars; Dolores Crackdown

CYBERSPACE—It looks like one of the minds behind Uber might be the latest to enter the paying-for-reservations wars.

THE MISSION—Be cautious with that rack of PBR or bottle of Bi-Rite rosé you bring on your next picnic jaunt to Dolores Park; apparently, some cops with nothing better to do are cracking down on open containers for the first time in ages. [SFist]

THE MISSION—Tomorrow is Craftsman & Wolves' second birthday, which they're celebrating via a team-up with kids' literary nonprofit 826 Valencia. Two special cube cakes based on kids' stories, The Black Frosting (gluten-free semolina cake, semolina lavender crumble, vanilla mousse, blackberry 'frosting,' sprinkles) and The Stolen Cake (candied-lemon banana cake, caramelized banana, Valrhona chocolate fudge waterfall) will be offered, with 20% of proceeds going to 826.
