SOMA— Luce will host another installment of the 4th Annual Culinary Clash this Sunday, March 15. The second of three student finalists from the International Culinary Center will showcase their menu as part of the annual cooking competition and fundraiser. Bay Area native Christopher Wan will prepare a three-course menu ($40); a portion of proceeds from each menu benefits the International Culinary Center's Scholarship Fund. [EaterWire]

MISSION— Speed Rack, the all-female speed-bartending competition, is back in town. It's a breast cancer fundraiser with a competitive angle, as contenders from local bars like ABV and Trick Dog battle it out for the title of Miss Speed Rack, a $500 prize to compete in the finals in New York and a trip to the Jameson factory in Ireland. Tickets are $20 and include punch and snacks from local eateries. [EaterWire]

SAN FRANCISCO— San Francisco doesn't mess around when it comes to coffee. Pour-overs, cold brew, siphons and a myriad of other super-intense brewing methods can be found at one of the many, many coffee shops and roasters around town. That's probably why this video about the experience of ordering coffee in San Francisco rings so very true. [Bold Italic]
