Santa Cruz Dr. Kefir Sparkling probiotic drink - where to get on tap?

I bought a bottle of Lemon Gingerade at Rainbow Grocery in SF. The label says you can refill it but I'm not sure where to get it on tap. Does anyone know?

group of 15 coming in from LA

A search for 6pm reservations for 15 on OpenTable had lots of choices. My first pick would be Original Joes's in North Beach. Availability didn't come up on OpenTable but I would give them a call. Credo in the Financial District is a good choice. Might be fun to take over the front room at Nombe in the Mission. Also try the newly opened Schroeder's on Front St.

Great eats (dishes or restaurants) easy walk from caltrain stations (any)

Marlowe at 4th and King, SF - Across the street from the station. I get cravings for the sauteed wild mushrooms.

Cafe Borrone or The Refuge in Menlo Park. Great outdoor seating at Cafe Borrone.

Palo Alto Creamery on Emerson, Palo Alto. Caribbean French Toast or any of the lunch specials.

Dishes you can only get on one day of the week

I tried the Pal's Takeaway burger. Typically only offered on Wednesday's but they had some today. It was really good. I recommend it.

Little Bee Bakery in Bernal Heights: soft opening today [San Francisco]

I was just there and got the first brownie sold! They also have Four Barrel Coffee and Three Twins ice cream. See below for email from Bernalwood newsletter...

According to the sign in the window, the new Little Bee Bakery from Bernal neighbor (and Chez Panisse alum) Stacie Pierce is set to open for a soft-launch starting today in the former Rock Candy Shop space at 521 Cortland.

The interior has received a thorough renovation, and a sign in the window says Little Bee will begin flight testing on October 11-13 from noon to 6 pm.

chowhound family that likes adventure with great foodie places

Go during the daytime to Joe's Cable Car for great hamburgers and a fun atmosphere. Namu Gaji or grab a picnic from BiRite Grocery to eat in Dolores Park at the end of the block. If you love mexican and want a vegan food adventure, check out Gracias Madre on Mission. The kids might like the candy case at St. Francis Fountain on 24th.

Last minute trip to Bay Area and have no idea where to eat.

How about Fusebox in Oakland? Not sure when you'll be passing through and would check on their hours before you head there.

There's a brewery and gastropub trend in the East Bay lately. I like Drakes in San Leandro. They may have food trucks onsite. Sierra Nevada and Moxy's in Berkeley and a lot of new places in Oakland.

Not too many places on the North Coast but I just got a tip about the food at Garcia River Casino in Point Arena. It is not a 24 hour casino.

Give me your best

Just got an announcement from UrbanDaddy about Big Sur's first new restaurant in 10 years, Big Sur Roadhouse. http://www.glenoaksbigsur.com/roadhou...

Marlowe might work for one of your dinners. Do not fail to order the side of wild mushrooms.

SF Restaurant recs for FOODIES WITH KIDS.

Might be out of your way but there are always kids at Gialina in Glen Park. It's steps away from a BART station.

Weekend escape in August - Need some guidance

Other options in North Beach are Original Joe's, The House or Park Tavern. 51 Romolo, Comstock Saloon or Rickhouse for drinks after.

For farm to table in the Mission on Sunday, other choices would be Local Mission Eatery or Slow Club. It should take you 25 minutes to get to the airport from the Mission. Or how about Plow on Potrero Hill?

Smoke 'n Wings BBQ Smoke House in San Jose

Checked it out on Sunday and the tri-tip was amazing. Also tried the ribs, brisket and two types of chicken wings. Everything was great.

Help Needed: in San Francisco, specifics

As predicted, the Old Clam House gets dissed on Chowhound but I still like it.

2nd on Outerlands.

Chowhounds may balk but for a SF classic how about the Old Clam House. You'll need to take a taxi since its in an industrial area.

I also recommend Local Mission Eatery.

Suggestions for lunch only M-F restaurants

Best Breakfast Sandwich in SF just discovered at V-105. They use a big square biscuit instead of bread. It has avocado, cheese and bacon. Will definitely be back for lunch. Also grabbed a killer filled Kouign-amann from Starter Bakery for later.

Stone Brewing Co at Liberty Station - great space!

Had a great time at the newly opened Stone Brewing Company at Liberty Station. Loved the interior and the servers uniforms. Restaurant is suitable for large groups and families with children. I had the mussels and the creme brulee. A must visit for beer lovers.
