The Bird starts offering breakfast

SoMa workers can now stop into The Bird on the way to the office for some pre-work nourishment. The fried chicken sandwich shop starts serving breakfast today, offering biscuit sandwiches, hash rounds, apple fritters, and Four Barrel coffee. Sandwiches — which come with hash rounds for $4.50 total — include fried chicken and egg and cheese with bacon or sausage. It’s available weekdays from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., after which lunch starts.

Off the Grid is trying to park in FiDi

Food truck facilitator Off the Grid (OTG) has been trying to worm its way into the Financial District for two years now, and it all hinges on a decision made by the city’s Board of Appeals today. In September, the Department of Public Works denied OTG’s application for three to four trucks outside 101 California St. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Now, it’s up to the Board of Appeals today at 5 p.m. in City Hall room 416 — if you support, sign the petition here.

MatrixFillmore takes a pause

Just slightly outside the Cow Hollow herpes triangle (you know, the party-filled crossing of Balboa, Sabrosa, and Eastside West) lies MatrixFillmore, the somewhat more upscale cocktail lounge on Fillmore. The lounge has temporarily closed as of today for renovations through late spring, which include more tables, a brighter look, and a slim food menu. The cocktails are also getting a refresh. Stay tuned for a reopening date.

Oakland’s Carl’s Jr. was the site of protests

One of the many things Bay Area people are currently unhappy about in America’s state of politics is labor secretary nominee and Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s CEO Andrew Puzder. To make that upset known, about five dozen protestors gathered at the Oakland Carl’s Jr. on Monday, SFist reports, likely speaking out against Puzder’s track record of wage violations, discrimination, and sexual harassment allegations.
