HAYES VALLEY— In warm and fuzzy news, cat enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that KitTea, the cat cafe, has had 17 cats adopted since it opened in June. According to founder Hannah Levy, they've also ramped up lunch offerings to include sandwiches, since there has been a high demand for "lunch with a view" in the adjoining tea room. That's right, people want to watch cats while they eat lunch. Whatever floats your boat, San Francisco. [Hoodline]

NAPA— Heritage Fire is rolling into Napa this weekend, with live-fire cookery and overwhelming amounts of meat in town. Talented SF chefs will be in attendance, including Matt Accarrino of SPQR and David Bazirgan of Dirty Habit. Accarrino's contribution to the meat-fest will be a roasted guinea hen with urbani truffles and wild fennel panzanella, while Bazirgan will offer up an Indonesian-inspired goat dish with fried rice and roti, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.Heritage Fire takes place at the Charles Krug winery on August 2 from 2 p.m.-7 p.m.; tickets available here.
