WesBurger N' More Opens

The menu will include his “fun" and delicious renditions of burgers, as well as fried chicken and tots. // Open every day, 6-10pm, 2240 Mission St. (Mission), wesburgernmore.com

Kenji Lopez Fried Chicken Pop-Up at Pal's Takeaway

Join award-winning food writer and culinary genius Kenji Lopez at Firebrand Breads as he collaborates with Pal's Takeaway to cook up kimchi-brined(!) fried chicken. He'll be signing copies of his latest book The Food Lab, which just won an IACP award for cookbook of the year. // 6:30pm until they sell out, 2343 Broadway (Oakland), kenjilopezalt.com/events

Community Grains Conference

While a "grains conference" doesn't sound all that exciting at first, this one features speakers such as Josey Baker of The Mill, Matthew Dillon of Clif Bar & Company, Community Grains owner-founder Bob Klein, Paul Muller of Full Belly Farms, and keynote speaker, author and geologist David Montgomery. The panels will explore topics such as the baker-farmer connection, seed-breeding, the ties between soil health and microbial life, and the nutritional value of 100% whole grains. Food and drinks (including bread made from local, organic grains) will be provided. // April 9 - 10, full program details and tickets here: communitygrains.com/2016cgconference

The Beast is Back at One Market
