Something tells me San Francisco restauranteur Brett Emerson made a good move by not naming his new Noe Valley bistro Olallie. It's hard to pronounce, even harder to spell, and who outside of your hardcore berry connoisseurs will know what the hell it means? But now Emerson is asking for your help to pick a better name, and there are prizes involved, namely free dinner at his new restaurant-to-be.

Check out a description of the restaurant's concept to get those verbal juices flowing, and keep in mind: "seasonable, sustainable California fare with Spanish flair." Among some of the pitches so far are Cafe Tango, Clara, Neblina and Bardine. Think you can do better? Of course you do.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.
