THE INTERNET— Chef Richie Nakano, formerly of Hapa Ramen, finally gives his side of the Hapa debacle. [Munchies]

DIVISADERO— Cafe Abir and its sister sake shop Corkage next door will be closing after 20 years on Divis. The business owner also happens to be the landlord and according to Hoodline, the space could become an expanded Japanese joint or sister restaurant to Tsunami Sushi next door. [Hoodline]

THE MISSION— Starting next week, Loló is mixing things up and rolling out a new spring/summer cocktail list featuring a Ramos Gin Shrub (Gin, Campari, Watermelon-Basil Shrub, Lime), The Fresh Prince (Pisco, Passion Fruit, Egg White, Lime, Orange Blossom Water), an "all-day variation" on the Mezcal Mary called 2 Birds, 1 Stone (Mezcal, Fresh Carrot Juice, Parsley, Celery Bitters, Kaffir Lime Salt Rim).

THE MISSION— the Food + Farm Film Festival comes to the Roxie Theater next week featuring 18 food-centric flicks sponsored by the folks from 18 Reasons. Tickets are $95 for three days of screenings or $15 per film. [EaterWire]
