CASTROCafe La Taza has completed its transformation to Bar Vero, and is now open with Highwire coffee and Mr. Holmes pastries. The Latin fusion restaurant should have lunch service by week's end, and dinner in a month or two. [Hoodline]

SAN FRANCISCO—A host of rad local ladies made Elle's list of 30 women who run the show at restaurants, including Pim Techamuanvivit (Kin Khao), Nicole Krasinski (State Bird Provisions/The Progress), Traci des Jardins, and the bicoastal April Bloomfield. [Elle]

BERKELEYStandard Fare has secured its retail license, meaning Chez Panisse alum Kelsie Kerr can finally sell her to-go meals without advance phone orders. Just the thing for dinner emergencies. [Berkeleyside Nosh]

SAN FRANCISCO—No longer just "the Tool guy," Maynard James Keenan is an outright vintner these days, and making the rounds in SF all week to promote his Arizona wineries, Caduceus and Merkin. He'll be visiting Millennium for a wine dinner and Bin 38 and Causwells for tastings, if you want to sample. [EaterWire]
