      Is it posted for a liquor license yet? There's nothing pending in the ABC system for that address.

          Apparently, the place will be dubbed "The Hog's Apothecary" with a target opening date sometime next month.

          From their Facebook page:

          American Style Beerhall/Gastropub
          Coming to North Temescal in February 2013, The Hog's Apothecary is an American-style beer hall brought to you by Bradford Earle and John Streit, featuring 32 American Craft brews and 4 local wines on draft, 2 firkins on hand pump, a selection of craft bottles, and a menu of 10 artisanal sausages, made in house, including a selection of small plates and salads.

          The Hog will offer 3 TVs for your game-viewing pleasure, 2 dart boards, and shuffleboard.

            Drove by today - it looked like people were inside, drinking beer. Has anyone been?

              there's one 'review' on yelp thus far. a recent summary on 'inside scoop' said they feature whole-hog eats, and they've hired one of the former beer directors of Monk's Kettle, so my expectations of their beer list will be high. haven't had a chance to get there, yet, and in no hurry to encounter another loud, crowded venue crammed with hipsters/aspiring 'bo-bo's'. the yelper didn't like the price of his sausage, relative to Telegraph or Rosamunde, but those two places have their own limitations of course.

              for those unfamiliar with north Oakland geography, the address of this pub places it closer to the Kaiser hospital complex and Mosswood Park, not in the popular eatery district folks refer to as 'Temescal' along Telegraph Ave, with the pizzas, Korean places, Juhu, Burma Superstar, Bar Lata, et. al.

                Yeah, to me that's Mosswood, not Temescal. There are a bunch of restaurants nearby on Broadway, including Ohgane and Art's Crab Shak.

                  technically Mosswood begins below 40th.

                  truburger and bluebottle outlets are also coming to the area.

                    certainly looks like all the new businesses are expecting to cash in on the kaiser hospital expansion.

                      "Technically"? Neighborhood definitions are mostly informal and it's exceedingly rare that people think of the two sides of a commercial street as being in two different neighborhoods.

                        Actually..Neighborhood definitions in the Eastbay are very concise and many neighborhoods and districts are definitive and accurately defined by two sides of the the same streets.

                        But this is hardly the forum to give you the many examples.
