MISSION—Another seafood-centric spot making its debut: Plin, from the former head chef of Seven Hills. It lands on Valencia tonight; see photos and the menu.

FILLMORE—Yoshi's has been sold, and jazz and Japanese food are on their way out. Find out what's next for the massive restaurant and music venue.

SAN FRANCISCO—Feeling hot? We've got 14 frozen cocktails around town that will cool you right down, from boozy slushies to alcoholic milkshakes.

OUTER RICHMOND—Outside Lands has a new surprise for fans: they're debuting GastroMagic, a new stage that focuses on all things culinary, with comedians and musicians joining in on the fun.

TENDERNOB—The forthcoming Ravi Kapur/Nopa restaurant now has a name and concept, not to mention one of SF's best bartenders signed up to get behind the stick. Hint: it's going to be a taste of Honolulu.
