Salty, rare, delicious burger slinger ~KRONNERBURGER~ is taking beef to the next level on Monday August 24th with Beefstro, a meat party par excellence. From 6pm to 11pm they’ll be serving a four-course menu that includes grass-fed rib-eye steaks that have been aged 90 days, for $65 per person. There will also be wine pairings available for $40, and the fine folks from Ordinaire Wine will be on hand to share some cave bottle selections. Reservations can be made by email. 4063 Piedmont Ave. at 41st St., Oakland, 510-823-2371.

I was sorry to learn that Seamus and Shelley Mulhall have decided to close their pet project, ~THE GROWLERS’ ARMS~ after less than a year of them being open. In a note to their newsletter subscribers, they say: “Dear friends and fans, and those of you that have become practically family, it is with great sorrow that we have to let you know that we are closing The Growlers’ Arms. During these last ten months, we have met so many incredible people who have supported us and have appreciated our vision. We would like to thank you all for your support and encouragement. Our final night will be Wednesday August 19th.”

They will be celebrating with a three-course dinner for $45, prepared by guest chefs from their days at Chez Panisse. You can also come by tonight for their last Tasty Tuesday menu, three courses for $30. Best wishes to the Mulhalls, I know their many friends will be so sorry to hear this news. 4214 Park Blvd. at Glenfield, Oakland, 510-328-1315.
