Humphry Slocombe had dropped a limited-edition CBD-infused ice cream

Humphry Slocombe has announced a new flavor called “Trick or Treat” that’s infused with CBD from Vertosa. The company describes it as “peppermint patty ice cream with chocolate chips and marshmallow fluff,” and a SF Gate reviewer says it left him feeling lightheaded and turned his teeth gray. If that doesn’t scare you off, you can score it until November 3 at any of Humphry Slocombe’s five Bay Area locations.

A San Francisco bar owner says it’s not tech bros or millennials that are killing his business, it’s City Hall

Tonic Nightlife Group has closed a couple of its bars in recent months, including Bullitt and Nokturnal. In a KQED op-ed, Ben Bleiman, a Tonic partner, says that San Francisco legislators create more problems than solutions for local businesses, including “fees or taxes that force our prices endlessly up.” SFist notes that this isn’t the first time publicans have made this argument, citing the harsh words the owner of Mr. Smith’s had when his venue closed last month.

Tonight’s the last night to go to Kennedy’s Pub & Curry House

Kennedy’s has stood at 1040 Columbus Avenue for decades, where it’s been known as “the city’s premier combination Irish pub/Indian restaurant/bike rental/pool hall and souvenir T-shirt shop,” the Chron writes. That all ends this evening, as — via Facebook — its owners say the place is serving its last craft beers and pakoras tonight. Owner Brahmabuta Swami has not commented on any reasons behind the closure.

The Gold Dust Lounge has been closed “indefinitely”

The longstanding SF bar was evicted from its Powell Street location in 2012, and reopened at 165 Jefferson Street the year after. Hoodline reports that the bar has been “closed until further notice” following a flood in its building. The news gets worse from there, as an employee says “the odds of this place getting fixed aren’t good,” and that the place might not ever reopen.

SoMa construction has killed Bluxome Street Winery’s tasting room

Matt Reidy, the founder of Bluxome Street Winery, tells the Chron that the massive amount of construction near its 53 Bluxome Street location will make it tough for sippers to enjoy themselves in the winery’s 3,000-square-foot tasting room. The room will close at the end of 2019, but the winery, itself, will continue to produce, at a reduced pace of about 1,000 cases per year.
