Martin Yan’s ~M.Y. CHINA~ is celebrating its one-year anniversary on Wednesday December 4th, and you’re invited to raise a glass to many more. During dinner, all guests will receive a free glass of bubbly, the Chinese Cuvée from Iron Horse Winery, along with a mooncake for dessert (it’s not a birthday without cake!). The offer is active from 5pm-close on Wednesday December 4th.

Bernalwood brings news of a very sad development in the neighborhood: It appears that beloved sandwich shop ~DELI PUB~ has closed. It sounds as though owner Imad Yaish has retired, following a violent robbery in October. Details are still scarce, but for some wonderful memories and comments from loyal neighborhood customers, read Tim Redmond’s piece on Bernalwood. 301 Cortland Ave. at Bocana.

According to Hayeswire, there’s a pizza shake-up in the works in Hayes Valley. It sounds like ~GO GETTERS PIZZA~ is moving from their current location into ~DON AGAPITO’S~ (which used to be Go Getters Deli). It’s not clear at the moment how the two restaurants will share the space or the menu, but a sign on the Go Getters’ door says they closed Thursday November 21st and reopened Monday November 25th in their new digs. 100 Gough St. at Page, 415-863-4149.

Tipster Jason B. wrote in to let us know that a new izakaya took over Sushi Tani on Geary in the Richmond. The new place is called ~JOO MAK~. Early Yelps are mostly positive, and report both Japanese and Korean menu items in a good-looking space. 4828 Geary Blvd. at Funston, 415-379-6250.

Jason B. also reports that a new sushi place called ~YOI~ has moved into the former Drunken Sushi location on Clement in the Outer Richmond. They’re serving sushi and ramen out of the remodeled space, according to initial Yelp reports. 2311 Clement St. at 24th Ave., 415-876-2311.
