Check out these 7 things—all happening this week.
1. A tailgating touchdown: Impress your pals by ordering Luna Park’s Tailgate Platter for Superbowl Sunday (the restaurant will take orders this Friday through the end of the game on Sunday). For some of us, it’s not about who wins or loses; it’s about the food—Niman Ranch BBQ chicken and ribs, coleslaw, French fries, beans and mashed potatoes.
I want to make this clear: Srijith, the executive sous chef of Campton Place Hotel restaurant, is not the kind of guy who's made his career cooking up a curry of the day. Before he arrived in SF, he was a chef at Deep End—an award-winning Conde Nast restaurant in the Maldives where the menu is Mediterranean.
1. Green delivery: This is the first full week that Grub Hub—online delivery guide and ordering service—is purchasing carbon offsets for every delivery.
2. Dine like it’s 1998: In celebration of 10 years in business, Absinthe is rolling back prices on signature dishes and cocktails from January 20 to February 1.
3. Go ‘shroomin’: Black Truffle dinner at Palmetto is tonight (January 22 at 7 p.m.). Start with beef carpaccio and shaved celery salad, move to pasta, then roasted guinea hen and finally a duet of desserts.

First you see the sketch of the light fixture in the rendering from my visit in October (read more about it here)…

Stay tuned. Waterbar’s opening date is slated for January 29.
