Two new happy hours to attend

There are two new happy hours in SF to get excited about. Here’s the rundown:

Tratto: Weekdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. with light bites for $3 to $8, Peroni for $3, house wine for $4, house cocktails for $6, and well cocktails for $7. 501 Geary St.

American Grilled Cheese Kitchen: Both locations of AGCK will add happy hour on weekdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. starting Monday, December 5. Deals include $3.50 craft beer pints, $5 wines, $3 mimosas, $3.50 sides, and $5.50 “Mousetraps” (Tillamook cheddar, creamy havarti, Monterey jack on local sourdough). 1 S. Park St. and 799 Battery St.

Kronnerburger bounces back after an accident closed it for days

Oakland’s Kronnerburger has had a tough start to the holiday season after one of its walls collapsed, breaking all of its plateware and liquor in the process, and forcing the restaurant to close for almost a week. It’s now back open, though, making this a very good time to eat its deliriously meaty, marrow-topped burger. Plus, there’s now a Dungeness crab burger on the menu, featuring Kronner’s signature “crabby patty” grilled or fried, with hot pepper tartar sauce, pickled carrots and watermelon radish, on a potato pain de mie bun.

AL’s Place closes its patio for the season

It will be harder once again to get a seat at AL’s Place, which has officially closed its 18-seat patio for the season. To counter that, the vegetable-forward Mission restaurant is making room for more walk-ins in the dining room.

The Bay Area doughnut calendar is back!

The annual Bay Area doughnut calendar has returned, and this year’s version is better than ever, with entries inspired by Bob's Donuts, Dynamo, Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, and more. Serendipitously, the illustrations just so happen to mirror Eater’s picks for the very best fried pastries in the city.
