TEMESCAL— Juhu Beach Club's "Summer Lunch Window" is now open, offering up a warm-weather classic: hot dogs. Assuming the Bay Area ever sees sunshine again, chef Preeti Mistry's creative dogs will scratch a certain summertime itch. In particular, the spicy Feral Heart Farm Dog topped with purple torpedo radishes, kimchi, onions and ghost pepper sauce sounds like a sinus-clearing winner. The window is open Tuesday-Thursday from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. [EBX]

TEMESCAL— And because apparently Temescal just can't get enough tubular meats, Rosamunde Sausage Grill has soft-opened on Telegraph Ave. They've got the same sausage- and beer-filled menu as their other locations, in a spiffy new space. Celebrate summer and sausages at their opening party on Thursday, June 11 from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. [Tablehopper]

TEMESCAL— While many are anticipating the opening of Temescal's New Normal Brewing Company, they don't plan to open until sometime much later in the year. In the meantime, the space is serving as an ad hoc art gallery, hosting curated shows with local artists and serving test batches of the brewery's beers. Join them for New Normal Three, a gallery show "exploring themes on being neighbors." The opening reception takes place Saturday, May 30 from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. Beer sales will benefit Studio One Art Center. [EaterWire]

NAPA— Though it's Fogtown, USA in San Francisco proper, the North Bay isn't suffering the same fate. Soak up some Napa sun (and wine) at the Culinary Institute of America's "Weekends on the Terrace" series. Every Saturday and Sunday from May 30 through August 16, the Wine Spectator Greystone Restaurant will fire up the grill, the smoker and the wood-fired pizza oven, from 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Reservations not required.
