Común Turns Into Taqueria; HessFest Takes Over North Park

Plus, a summer party at Suzie's Farm.

EAST VILLAGE— Común Kitchen and Tavern has been rebranded as Común Taqueria and executive chef/partner Chad White (who may or may not be on Top Chef) has restructured the menu. Now, the eatery's top-selling tostadas, including carnitas and pollo asado, are also available as a taco, torta, quesadilla, fry-topper, or as bowl served with a side of tortillas. Común's most popular snacks, from the Mexican corn to ahi tuna on chicharron remain, and are joined by a new dish of torched and pureed homily with queso fresco and cilantro. [EaterWire]

NORTH PARK— Mike Hess Brewing is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a street party on Saturday, July 25 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. that'll shut down part of Grim Avenue for a beer and food fest. General Session tickets include unlimited samples from 19 breweries, including Alpine, Bagby Beer Co., Societe Brewing and more, plus four food tasters from participating eateries, ranging from City Tacos, Coin-Op, Common Theory and Waypoint Public. You'll also score a commemorative glass, refillable with Hess' core beers for just $4 throughout the rest of 2015. [EaterWire]
