Local bread wizard Josey Baker is launching a pizza night at ~THE MILL~ on Monday nights from 6pm-9pm. Slices are $2.50, whole pies are $20, and both can be enjoyed to go or right there. Toppings will change every week, and here’s the lineup for the month: March 10th peppers and onions, March 17th “shrooms and gras” (that would be cremini mushrooms and asparagus), March 24th spicy broccoli, and March 31st leek and potato. Pro tip: you may want to get there early since last night’s pizza party sold 300 slices in two hours—they were out by 8pm! 736 Divisadero St. at Fulton, 415-345-1953.

You’ll have to wait a couple of weeks for your ~MISSION CHINESE FOOD~ fix, because they are closed for their annual vacation until March 13th, according to a tweet. But never fear, they’ll be back to their spicy tricks soon.

Another temporary closure is going to be happening at ~FLOUR + WATER~. The restaurant is turning five on May 15th (!) and is going to close for a refresh from May 7th-14th to make a lot of little changes, from fresh paint to new art features and some kitchen tweaks. The restaurant will be looking all fresh and pretty on its grand reopening on May 15th, ta-da! I’ll remind you as the date gets closer.

~PADRECITO~ is now serving brunch Friday through Sunday from 11am-2:30pm (hours will probably be expanded soon, too). The menu includes brunch choices like chilaquiles and sopes de machaca with brisket and eggs, and lunch options like fish tacos and a quesadilla with hen-of-the-woods mushrooms and nettles. Take a look at the menu here. The full bar has a host of brunch cocktails available, including the Buenos Dias with coffee, bourbon, egg white, Cynar, and cacao. 901 Cole St. at Carl, 415-742-5505.

At ~THE PALACE~ there are a few changes in place. First is that the spot now has a beer and wine license, so the days of BYO are now over. Instead, you’ll find an edited list of two beers and two wines, selected with assistance from neighbors at St. Vincent. In addition, they are now accepting credit cards, and a renovation to the bar area means that 10 seats will be added at the bar this month. 3047 Mission St. at Cesar Chavez, text only to 415-666-5218.
