TENDERLOIN— In case you missed it, Alton Brown is in town on very unserious business, as part of his Edible Inevitable tour. The live show is two hours of Alton's signature comedy, crazy food science and general antics. There's no room for boredom at this show, especially for guests sitting in the "Poncho Zone," technically the first few rows of the audience. Find out why rain gear is part of the dress code tonight, at 8:00 p.m; tickets are available here. [EaterWire]

JACKSON SQUARE— This weekend, dine at Roka Akor to taste their shipment of highly prized A5-12 grade Japanese Wagyu. Apparently it's usually reserved for Japanese royalty only, which is totally insane. So take the beef-lover in your life out for a decadent treat and literally eat like kings (or queens).

OAKLAND— Head over to Lungomare in Jack London Square for a dinner with Sierra Nevada. Brewer Brian McGillivray has teamed up with chef Craig DiFonzo to perfectly pair beers with dishes like grilled Monterey squid and prosciutto-wrapped monkfish with sweet pea risotto. The four-course dinner (with tastings) is $50 and takes place Wednesday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m. Make reservations here. [EaterWire]

LOWER HAIGHT— San Francisco's immense and delicious pastry scene is going to be the death of us all (eventually). For now, just enjoy the inventive treats that keep rolling out of ovens all over the city, including the "chounut." CHOUX Bakery is introducing their version of a doughnut, in the form of a glazed paté choux bun shaped like a doughnut and filled with custard. Available on weekends only, this Sunday will launch the doughnut-ish treat in two flavors: berries and cream, and hazelnut. [EaterWire]
