Buffalo Room Changes Name to Cease & Desist; Union Square Food + Art Takes Over

Plus, Sunset Magazine's celebration weekend and a Cooking Matters brunch.

Cease & Desist

MISSION— The Mission's Buffalo Club has a new name, as of June 1. Apparently, a bar of the same name delivered a cease-and-desist letter, demanding they stop using the name. In response, Buffalo Club swiftly complied, changing its name to Cease & Desist. That's pretty much the only thing that will change, though no word yet on what will become of the giant disco buffalo hanging above the bar. [Capp Street Crap]

UNION SQUARE— The Union Square Food + Art festival is throwing a big party tomorrow night, featuring tasty snacks from neighborhood restaurants, wine tastings, and gallery openings. The event is free, but RSVP to reserve a wristband. The block party is Thursday, June 4 from 5 p.m.-8 p.m.; RSVP here. [EaterWire]

MENLO PARK— Sunset Magazine is holding its annual final Sunset Celebration in Menlo Park, before they move their headquarters to Oakland. The event will feature a kitchen stage with presentations and demos from chefs like James Syhabout (Commis, Hawker Fare), Chris Cosentino (Cockscomb) and Elisabeth Prueitt (Tartine Bakery), as well as other stages focusing on things like gardening, outdoor living, home and travel. There'll also be plenty of wine and beer seminars, and live music. The events take place June 6-7; tickets and info available here. [EaterWire]

OAKLAND— Cooking Matters, the non-profit program from 18 Reasons, offers free cooking classes to low-income communities around the Bay Area. This weekend marks the annual Cooking Matters Brunch, in which the staff prepares a meal for volunteers, friends and supporters. Tickets include all food and drinks (like mimosas!) and are only $20. Join the crew this Sunday, June 7 at Oakland's Humanist Hall; tickets available here [EaterWire]
