Halal Guys May Descend on SF; Sierra's Beer Camp Bust

SAN FRANCISCO—SF finally has a halal cart these days, but when it comes to meat and rice on a plate, it's hard to beat NYC's original Halal Guys. The good news: they're becoming a chain (they want to be "the Chipotle of Middle Eastern food"), and SF is one of their initial target cities. Pass the white sauce! [NY Post via Inside Scoop]

BERKELEY—Beer nerds, heads up: Sierra Nevada is putting all 12 of its Beer Camp Across America collaborations (with the likes of Bell's, Cigar City, Three Floyds, and other amazing craft brewers that aren't sold in California) on draft at The Torpedo Room today. Purchase a flight of four and a growler, and you'll get 20% off. [EaterWire]

SANTA ROSA—Speaking of beer, congrats to Russian River Brewing Company, whose Pliny the Elder IPA was named the best beer in the country by the readers of homebrew mag Zymurgy for the sixth year running. RRBC was also named best brewery, and fellow North Bay brewers Lagunitas came in at #8, with their Lagunitas Sucks beer ranked #6. [Zymurgy]

HAYES VALLEYTalbot Cafe is currently boarded up, but it's coming back soon as a new concept from owner Phuong Thanh. Thanh says the space is getting a fresh coat of paint, new menu items like polenta waffles, and Sightglass coffee. A few former menu items, like the chicken sandwich, will stick around. [Hoodline]
