Let's do lunch:
SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody recommends checking out the pelmeny and stuffed cabbage at Cinderella Bakery & Restaurant (436 Balboa near Sixth Ave.), 751-9690.

Drink therapy:
Nobody can drink like Aussies. And while they might know diddly about America's favorite pastime, the folks at down-under-themed South restaurant are certainly game: South's baseball season happy hour offers $5 bar bites and beers and $6 wines (even on non-game days), 3-6:30 p.m. South 330 Townsend #101 (near Fourth St.), 974-5599.
Halfsy Hour at Zinnia restaurant's bar and lounge features half-price specialty cocktails, wines by the glass, and premium brewskis. Continue the cutesy theme by ordering halfsy portions from chef Sean O'Brien's din-din menu. Zinnia 500 Jackson (at Montgomery), 956-7300.

Livin' the life:
It's night two of Sicilian cooking maven Fabrizia Lanza's swing through the Bay Area. Tonight, Lanza (in collaboration with David Tanis) rolls up her sleeves to cook downstairs at Chez Panisse. Think bucatini con le sarde and spezzatine di agnello. But unless you've got $125 (the price includes wine) and, um, a rezzie, you'll be stuck merely imagining them. Chez Panisse 1517 Shattuck (near Vine), Berkeley; 510-548-5525.
