Tuesday: Guy Fieri's Super Bowl Tailgate Menu, BottleRock's Food Vendors

Plus, Tony's has a $100 gold-flecked pizza, Hot Sauce and Panko is moving, the Clay Theater might get better eats, and a profile on the bean queen of the Central Valley.

[jump] Guy Fieri's $700 Super Bowl Tailgate Menu
I could write about Guy Fieri all day, every day, but this one is pure gold. If you want to shell out $700 and mingle with some former NFL players while drinking from an open bar and eating Guy Fieri's food, the menu for the The Players Super Bowl Tailgate has been announced, and a goodly portion of it sounds like it's preying on the guests. Some highlights: a live nacho bar, a “whole hog showdown” (with Caja china-cooked whole hogs done up right in two tasty styles, Kahlua Pig “Sour or Sweet”), S'mores pie, and “Old-Skool” Italian meatballs. Other items sound a little cryptic, or else like options for a sports car. For instance, “American Slider, bacon, SMC, Donkey and LTOP” is a form of passed apps. Still, I wanna go! 

Tony's $100 Gold-Flecked Pizzas
Meanwhile, in a cease-and-desist-baiting attempt to singlehandedly pop the tech bubble, Tony's Pizza Napoletana on Stockton Street is selling 50 $100 pizzas topped with gold flakes, white truffles, 24-month San Daniele proscuitto, mache, Bellwether Farms' Fromage Blanc and Carmody cheeses, Grande Whole Milk mozzarella, Maldon salt, and three Far West Fungi mushrooms (clamshell, lion's mane, and yellow oyster). They're available until Feb. 7, and the proceeds go to the Kick Hunger Challenge, a partnership between the SF-Marin Food Bank, the 49ers, and St. Anthony's San Francisco.
Tony's Pizza Napoletana, 1570 Stockton, 415-835-9888 or tonyspizzanapoletana.com.

BottleRock Lineup Released
Napa's three-day BottleRock festival comes back May 27-29 with Stevie Wonder, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Florence + the Machine, and Fantastic Negrito, but the food lineup has been announced as well. It's pretty Wine Country-heavy, but many names are familiar: Kollar Chocolates, Three Twins Ice Cream, Me So Hungry, Ca' Momi, La Toque, Morimoto, Oenotri, and more. For wine and beer, look for JaM Cellars, Miner Family Winery, Clos du Val, Silver Oak Cellars, and Naked Wines, along with very familiar brewers like Anchor, Blue Moon, Lagunitas, and Coors. (The accompanying pic of two people schlepping an iced-down cooler full of Coors is a dream.) Tickets go on sale Monday, Jan. 7 at 10 a.m.

Hot Sauce and Panko Will Move to Nob Hill
Hot Sauce and Panko, the retail store with no dine-in capacity that states explicitly that it's not a restaurant, will shortly be moving out of the Richmond because its building has a date with a wrecking ball some time in the future. Eater caught that it'll be moving to 1468 Hyde Street sometime next month, bringing chicken wings and waffles to an underwaffled precinct. 

Expanded Food and Drink Coming to the Clay Theater?
The Alamo Drafthouse's debut might be having a trickle-down effect. Landmark Theatres was deliberating what to do with the Clay Theater, and after rejecting a kill-it-to-save-it proposal of dividing the single-screen venue into three theaters, seems to have decided to go with upping the food and drink game, according to the New Fillmore. It's just preliminary, but I expect this type of announcement to spread across the city. 

Hello, Marcella!
The New York Times profiles Marcella Hazan, she of the eponymous Marcella bean. Cute.
