Tanya Holland is happy to announce ~B-SIDE BBQ~ is going to have cocktails that feature her handmade drink syrups. Drinks include the West Side Julep (rye, minted brown sugar syrup, lemon) and the Bonze Buckaroo Buck (bourbon, velvet falernum, Angostura bitters, lime, ginger beer). It all starts this Friday October 5th. Hours are also going to be extended to 11am-10pm. Also of note: swing by from 4pm-6pm Tue-Fri during October for happy hour, and $10 will get you a draft beer or house wine, and your pick of spicy baked chicken wings, pulled pork sliders, or barbecued rib ends. Hubba. 3301 San Pablo Ave. at 34th St., Oakland, 510-595-0227. (And here’s a tip: EZ Smog, their neighbor, will allow you park in their lot after 6pm. You’re welcome.)

~ADESSO~ is now offering Roman-style pizza thanks to dopo chef Joey Rachel (three kinds, served “a taglio” [by the cut]), and you can sample it for free at a pizza party on Sunday October 14th from 3-6pm. They will be also offering $5 glasses of wine and beer. 4395 Piedmont Ave. at Pleasant Valley, Oakland, 510-601-0305.
