Chefs on television and in the classroom

DIY Bloody Marys in North Park, a picnic class in La Jolla, a food-drink-music fest in Escondido, a chance to be on TV and the usual roundup of restaurant openings

Pacific Coast Grill, sitting pretty in Solana Beach for the last 15 years, will sit even prettier in its new location at the Cardiff spot formerly occupied by Charlie’s by the Sea (526 S. Highway 101), slated for a late-summer opening. pacificcoastgrill.com

Finch’s Wine Bar & Bistro, (7644 Girard Ave. in La Jolla]) opened March 29. It’s cute, quaint and subtly French. Go. finchslajolla.com

Rhythm & Vine—a music, wine, beer and food festival benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego—will take place at North County Fair mall in Escondido from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 9. Tickets are $75 in advance and $100 at the door. rhythmandvine.org

Freebirds, a Texas-based, flame-broiler-like chain and Chipotle competitor, is slated to open its first San Diego location in July at 3958 Fifth Ave. in Hillcrest. Construction has not yet commenced; I’ll keep you posted on details. The meat’s hormone-free and stuff. freebirds.com

Cups La Jolla (7857 Girard Ave.), the beacon of all that is organic in cupcake form, will offer “The Perfect Picnic” from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 9, the first in a series of themed hands-on culinary classes taught by professional chefs, mixologists and restaurateurs. Eco-conscious chef Chad White of EGO Culinary Trends will teach guests how to prepare a series of tasty picnic-style foods, and Ian Ward and Lucien Connor of Snake Oil Cocktail Co. will provide mixology tips. Cups also offers gluten-free cooking classes taught by Rachel Marie Helmer of Specialty Produce. cupslj.com

Remember as a child trying to incite Bloody Mary from the depths of your loo? Here’s a better idea: Get the drinkable Mary at West Coast tavern’s (2895 University Ave. in North Park) new do-it-yourself Bloody Mary bar, where you choose your ingredients, including bacon, grilled asparagus, charred green beans and staples like celery and pickled stuff. Served weekends during brunch. westcoasttavern.com

Great American Chefs Tour comes to a boob tube near you this fall, hosted by your favorite Cooking Guy, Sam Zien, and featuring four chefs from each touring region. It commences with San Diego’s Matt Gordon of Urban Solace; Isabel Cruz of Isabel’s Cantina, Barrio Star and Coffee Cup; Anthony Sinsay of Harney Sushi; and Will Gustwiller of Eclipse Chocolat. Filming happens at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 7, at House of Blues San Diego. A ticket ($50 to $100) gets you a spot in the studio audience, food and drinks. Maybe the camera will even pan in your direction. greatamericanchefstour.com

Brockton Villa (1235 Coast Blvd. in La Jolla) will celebrate dos equis in anniversary years (that’s 20, friends) while rolling out supper service in tandem with longer days of light. brocktonvilla.com
