UD - Pork Ramen from a Chez Panisse Vet

Pork Ramen from a Chez Panisse Vet

If anything could lure you across the bay, it’s a ramen joint from a trio of Chez Panisse vets. Not only do they spit-roast their pork in-house and make noodles from scratch, but they also have a serious cocktail program helmed by a Beretta vet. Ramen’s never had better company.

Opens Jan 4, Ramen Shop, 5812 College Ave (at Oak Grove), Oakland, 510-788-6370

UD - Bowie and Elvis Birthday Bash

Bowie and Elvis Birthday Bash

Just when you thought your holiday festivities were over, you’ve got to don your best Elvis (or Ziggy Stardust) duds and party some more.

Jan 7, 5-9pm, Regalito Rosticeria, 3481 18th St (near Valencia), 415-503-0650, walk in for à la carte, tasting-menu tickets here

UD - All-Day Happy Hour at the Brixton

All-Day Happy Hour at the Brixton

You can appreciate a good happy hour. But when a bar goes ahead and extends it to all day and all night every Tuesday, your level of appreciation tends to skyrocket. Come in anytime on Tuesdays for $5 apps and cocktails, $3 pints and $6 wine. Deal with Wednesday when it comes...
