$3 Three-Martini Lunch

A couple of somewhat serious news items are totally clouding our fun blogging April Fool’s Day. Fortunately, there’s great news at the end of this post. Quickly: Buzz is growing about a purported attempt by the city to take over the Heart of the City farmers’ market. That isn’t going to go over well with the farmers, as there’s plenty wanting in the city’s managerial style.

Also, an art exhibit apparently documenting the slaughter of livestock in Mexico got yanked from an exhibition at San Francisco Art Institute after a bevy of threats from animal rights activists. Ugly all around.

About the only good news we’re hearing today is that Palio d’Asti is offering a hell of a drinks deal all month long in honor of tax season. But it is one sweet deal: $1 martinis at lunch for the whole month. If you’ve never had the classic liquid lunch (three martinis and six olives), now’s the time to get it at a discount.
