1. If you ever want to start a fight in a bar in San Francisco, don't hit on somebody's partner. (Which is more likely to get you a three-way than bruised knuckles.) Tell them you think their favorite cafe sucks. W. Blake Gray wades into the melee this week by listing the five best cafes in San Francisco

2. Two things SFoodie learned from Caroline Chen's article about beekeeping in San Francisco: 1. This regulation-giddy city doesn't have any rules about how and where you can set up a beehive. 2. City honey is cleaner than country honey. Why? Fewer pesticides.

3. In a city dominated by OpenTable, the Microsoft of online reservations companies, how come none of the high-end Chinese restaurants use the site? No answers, only questions.

4. Foodspotter Luis Chong discovers Hot Sauce and Panko, a shop specializing in chicken wings and waffles, with an impressive library of hot sauces for dousing the meat.

5. W. Blake Gray writes about a server who's suing her employer, Cafe Gratitude, for requiring that she participate in tip-pooling. (Who gets tipped out? Cooks and service staff. Who does that make happy? Those of us who used to cook.) The comments here are worth reading.
