Wine-Tasting Rooms Temporarily Allowed to Serve Food

••• From Twenty-Four Blackbirds: “While we aren’t ready to fully open, we will open our front dutch door to become a walk up ice cream shop on weekends from 12–4! [Or when it sells out.] We have some amazing flavors for you to try, and more flavors to come every week: Single Origin Dark Chocolate [above], Low Pigeon Coffee Roasters Cold Brew, and Cacao Juice Sorbet (made from the fruit that surrounds cacao beans when they are first picked).”

••• Savoy Café and Deli has what it says is the city’s first parklet. (That’s what it’s called when you take over parking spaces.) Get used it—we’re going to see a lot more of them.

••• The Tuesday farmers’ market moved north one block, so it’s now on State Street between De La Guerra and Cota. I asked if this is temporary, and the answer yes, but the SBCFMA expects it to be this way for some time.

••• From the county: A “temporary suspension of restrictions authorizes wineries and wine tasting rooms to serve food during the Covid-19 emergency, as long as they are compliant with state laws regulating retail food, alcohol, alcohol licensing and all local directives regarding reopening of businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic response.”

••• I updated the list of restaurants that have reopened for dine-in service (whether it’s inside and/or outside) for a few days, but I’m giving up. You can assume almost every restaurant with outside seating is serving, or will be soon, and many with mostly inside seating are doing it, too. When in doubt, call before heading over.

••• The Handlebar Coffee Roasters outpost on De La Vina has a great selection of local wine—from Pence, Tatomer, Pierdrasassi, Sandhi, and more—for just $20 per bottle.
