Eat the Week SF: Vegans Go Meat
1. Subway axed its $5 footlong in San Francisco in response to the minimum wage increase that went into effect in January. Subway told Fox that it couldn’t afford to give the deal in SF because of the high cost of living. They will still offer the special sandi of the month for $5, which is tuna with jalapenos. Yum?
2. Assembly Bill 1678, the bill that would keep food trucks away from schools and out of 80% of San Francisco, was withdrawn this week for supposed revision, says SF Weekly, although the author of the bill, Bill Monning, thinks food trucks close to schools is still a pressing issue. Huffington Post has photos of some of the city’s favorite trucks in action.
3. Neil Young’s son, Ben Young has an organic egg farm, Coastside Ranch, with very special and amazing eggs, says SF Gate. Young’s eggs fly off the shelf and his business is enjoying great success in spite of Young’s cerebral palsy.

If you still have a hankering for pizza, the Boot and Shoe Service is right across the street.
10. Brown Sugar Kitchen is one of the East Bay’s favorite spots for Southern food, but the only thing missing is BBQ. Not to worry. B-Side BBQ, chef Tanya Holland’s newest venture, is here to save your craving, says East Bay Express.
