The gossip scene is so devoid of big openings and closures that Buzz Machine is feeling a little like a high school newspaper today:
Eater SF learns that the new name of the bar on the site of the old Nob Hill Tavern will be Wreck Room (1390 California) and that it will have a pool table. The opening date: still unknown. UPDATE: It's opening Wednesday.
Last week, SFoodie posted that The Galley is now serving food at Clooney's Irish Pub (1401 Valencia). The pitch: sandwiches such as grilled PBJ with homemade jam, beef tongue, and beef with braised onions.
Haighteration observes signage changes at Katz and worries: What does it all mean? We don't know, H. We don't know.
And in other Mission news, SFoodie sister blog The Snitch predicts that the tables at La Torta Gorda may be a little dirtier than usual.
