SAN FRANCISCO— It's official: restaurateur Dennis Leary (House of Shields, Golden West) is the most interesting man in the world. The Chron's recent profile of the chef, farmer and businessman includes a list of his favorite secret eats and hangout spots, each of which Leary describes as "an echo of the quirky time before the blandness of tech flowed over this town like sugar-free vanilla pudding."

COW HOLLOW— Tropical oasis Palm House loves rum so much that they purchased their very own barrel of it, from the Mount Gay distillery in Barbados. They plan to premiere their Black Barrel blend on Saturday, January 31 from 9-11pm, with drinks like a five-spice daiquiri and rum old fashioneds. [EaterWire]
