Today’s liquor licenses brought news of The Hog’s Apothecary, a new Oakland restaurant from owners Bradford Earle and John Streit. We’ve reached out for further details, but here’s what we’ve got so far: It will be at 375 40th Street at Opal, just down the street from Homeroom; Earle is the manager of Park Avenue Bar and Grill as Eater mentioned earlier and Streit is a chef at Rotten City Pizza in Emeryville; the name of their holding company is Abe Froman Enterprises, a cheeky reference to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the fictional “Sausage King of Chicago”; and Tablehopper points us to this Chowhound tip that it will be a sausage and beer pub, and there may also be shuffleboard.

Yep. It’s a sausage reference.
