Celebrate the holiday with something more authentic than a sombrero.
We love ice cream, and lord knows we adore our gays, so we're thrilled to welcome Big Gay Ice Cream cofounder Bryan Petroff to San Francisco this weekend as he parades through town on tour for their debut cookbook, Big Gay Ice Cream: Saucy Stories & Frozen Treats: Going All the Way with Ice Cream (Anthony Bourdain wrote the foreword—swoon!).
This week, Patxi's Pizza and Off The Grid's seek South Bay domination. Plus, Chinese food in Burlingame and bubble tea in Millbrae!

Plus, chef change-ups in St. Helena, Trestle opens in Jackson Square, and a preview of forthcoming veg-centric restaurant, Citizen Fox.
Vegans of San Francisco may still be shedding a tear over this month’s closure of famed restaurant Millennium. But fear not, tofu-lovers. There’s a new veggie hotspot in town, and it’s offering up one of the city’s most beloved cuisines—Japanese food, ramen included—in fully meatless fashion.
Citrus naturally complements many beer styles—there's not much better than fresh-squeezed lime in a Mexican lager or fresh orange into a Belgian wheat. beer. And adding citrus to a beer while it’s being brewed isn’t unheard of either; traditional Belgian-style witbiers are made with orange peel. However, like all things West coast, local craft brewers are pushing the envelope, in this case by including lots of fruit and citrusy hops into their brews. We've rounded up a few options that may be the perfect replacement for your morning OJ.
What in the world could be more heavenly than a Pie Shake—a piece of your favorite pie blended with ice cream and milk and then slurped through a straw?
