If you feel like playing around this Saturday April 1st (April Fools’ Day)—and I’m not talking about telling people you’re pregnant or you won the lottery or other tomfoolery—you may want to consider swinging by one of the four ~CRAFTSMAN AND WOLVES~ locations and order a Rebel Within. If you end up with one of the four Rebels without an egg inside (a Rebel Without!), you win a free Rebel Within every month for one year. I know, if I bought one and didn’t have the egg inside, I’d be upset! But really, it’s a good thing. Swing by CAW Valencia, CAW Pacific, CAW Den, and the CAW Ferry Plaza Farmers Market stand.

(In related news, CAW may be opening a doughnut shop in Bayview and offer training to local residents; read more in Hoodline here.)

More breakfast fun: the folks at ~BLUESTEM BRASSERIE~ are serving brunch for dinner on April Fools’ Day. (I kind of love this, been waiting for someone to have a brunch for dinner restaurant for a long time.) Chef John Griffiths will be serving their new cinnamon roll with brown butter-cream cheese frosting; Dutch baby with Comté cheese, bacon, caramelized apples, and fried rosemary; steak and eggs with a grilled bavette, charred herb salsa verde, griddled potatoes, and scallions; and a crispy buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with Calabrian chile aioli, bread and butter pickles, red onions, and Little Gems. You can even get a Bacon Bloody Mary with bacon-infused vodka, celery salt rim, and housemade pickles. Reservations or 415-547-1111.
