Drink a few brewskies while you shop for brewskies? Cross your fingers. Capp Street Crap reports:

Known for its array of fancy liquor, the tiny market is pursuing a beer and wine license which, if approved, would allow them to start serving in the store.

Although letters have been sent to neighbors and a California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control already hangs in the store’s front window, owner Paul Miller wrote in an email that the process could still take months – if they get the approval at all.

Those exact circumstances might be hard to duplicate — but you can definitely pick up Lo-Fi Aperitifs products at Royal Cuckoo Market on 19th Street, just a couple blocks from the park, which gets you about halfway there. Here’s what the bottle looks like:

And here’s a closeup of the label, which gives you a nice hint of what to expect:

La Taqueria opening new location

la-taqueria-75

7×7 reports:

La Taqueria, home of America’s best burrito, is opening up a second location on Thursday. But as splendid and amazing as this news is, you’ll be sad to know that the new location is in Turlock, a small town near Modesto and a two hour drive from San Francisco. The second restaurant will run by the owner’s daughter, Irene Gonzales, and will have the same recipes and secret menu as the original. There will also be more meats on the menu: al pastor, grilled chicken, and shrimp, as well as a shrimp cocktail (which just may be reason enough to make the trek). [link]

Turlock here we come!
