Plus, major Mezcal at Bartlett Hall and dinner with a Master Sommelier at RN74.


EMBARCADERO— It appears that the endearingly gruff Anthony Bourdain has returned to the Bay Area to film his show, Parts Unknown. Tablehopper reports that he was spotted filming at Sinbad's yesterday, which is less surprising than the fact that Sinbad's is still open. The saga continues, and this time the whole world will get an inside look at the tenuous relationship between SF restaurants their landlords. Fun! [Tablehopper]

LOWER HAIGHT— Looks like things are literally heating up for this year's Pride, as temperatures are actually in the '70s, and Karl the Fog seems to have retreated. Luckily, Three Twins Ice Cream has rolled out some premium pride flavors at their Fillmore shop, including gems like Freedom to Marry Cherry (chocolate cherry chunk) and Bear Bait (honey ice cream with peanut butter cups). The flavors are available all pride weekend long, Friday-Sunday from 11 a.m.- 10 p.m. [EaterWire]
