Saturday Overhaul: drinks and democracy

Starting this Saturday, diners choose the charity. We are still working out the kinks of the new system, but in principle, everyone will be able to write a charity on the back of their ticket and we'll send the proceeds to the eaters' choice (and keep a tally of the runners-up as a basis for the following week).

We will also officially begin to overhaul the drinks menu, thanks to our friend Keli Rivers, formerly with Zuni Cafe. Among other things, we will now offer Lillet and an improved beer selection.

As an aside, there has been basically no wait for tables after 8:00pm on Saturdays, in case you'd like to check us out, but would rather not wait. We apologize in advance if there is now a wait. In general, we'd like to encourage people to visit us later in the evening, rather than rushing to get in on the first seating. Enjoy our more leisurely atmosphere as the night winds down . . .

My rush has generally been because of fear you'll run out of everything. :) I'll give waiting a shot, and hope you've still got food!

Wow, just saw an article about this event on SF chronicle website and it looks awesome! Can't wait to try it out. Are you open to volunteer pantry/line cooks who don't have much experience but really want to learn?
