Eater has more details on ~EL AMIGO~, the Bernal Heights bar connected to Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack that I mentioned was going through some changes. Ends up the new owner, Joe Kaplan, was a bartender at neighboring The Royal Cuckoo, and is serving a house margarita (made with Cabrito Blanco tequila) for just $5. There’s a list of 30 blue agave tequilas, and look for more Latin-inspired cocktails coming down the pike. 3355 Mission St. at Virginia.
Here’s more on who is moving into the Socha Cafe space which I reported was all covered up last week: Grub Street notes it will be a second location of North Beach’s wine bar, ~DELL’UVA~. Owners Jason Marcucci and Juri McCorkle are aiming for an opening in early June. 3235 Mission St. at Valencia.
