Brian Malarkey will emcee the evening, and there will be food and drink specials for the crowd, plus the opportunity to enter into a bivalve-eating contest of your own. Doors open at 5 p.m.; the event starts at 6 p.m. [EaterWire]

PACIFIC BEACHCiro's Pacific Beach location has just launched a new breakfast menu that includes coconut-stout pancakes, chilaquiles, homemade biscuits and gravy and a sandwich called the Fat Elvis that heaps bacon and bananas on peanut butter and maple syrup-slathered brioche. There's less gut-busting fare too; healthier options like acai bowls and egg white omelets. [EaterWire]
