Here's A Possible Silver Lining to the Chez Panisse Fire

Posted By on Fri, Mar 8, 2013 at 12:44 PM


The food Twittersphere has been buzzing this morning about the news of a fire last night at iconic Berkeley restaurant Chez Panisse. The fire was first reported around 3 a.m. by a passer-by, and contained sometime between 3:30 and 3:45 a.m. -- before the blaze could f-up any more than the exterior and front porch, according to reports from several sources.

Alice Waters told The New York Times that she hoped to re-open the popular cafe later this week, thanks to her business interruption insurance.

If you are single, and starving, today is officially no longer Valentine's Day as you know it -- It's now National Food Truck Date Day.

Jeanna Barrett, a frustrated online dater-turned-S.F.entrepreneur, has rolled out this delicious idea that we all ignore today's lame American holiday forced on us every year and instead declare it the one day where you run around to food trucks, stuff your face, and love it.

There are any number of ways to begin overcoming the chemical and emotional effects of yesterday's Super Bowl loss. There are mature and adult methods of coping with the incredible frustration of your team's agonizing and hard-fought loss of a football game over which you have no control.

Or you can stick some pudding in your face.

In an ad campaign every bit as bizarre as Jim Harbaugh's goal-line playcalling, Jell-O is offering a "Pudding Surprise" Tuesday at 12:30 at Broadway and Columbus.
