* Everyone wants an escape from Nebraska at the moment, right? The staff at downtown’s Boiler Room took a week out of the restaurant to travel to San Francisco to do some foodie research. Last year, the team visited Chicago restaurants and speakeasy-type bars to influence their menu and drink list. San Francisco is sure to inform The Boiler Room’s wine list and its emphasis on local and organic cuisine. The restaurant reopened Jan. 24, after a week hiatus. Visit theboilerroomrestaurant.com or call 916.9274. * What most of us already know, Draft Magazine has made official. The publication listed the Crescent Moon as one of its best 100 beer bars. The Crescent Moon and adjoining Huber-Haus and Max and Joe’s, plus neighboring Beertopia provide an incredibly diverse menu of national, international and craft beers, but the magazine credited the Moon with serving local drafts by Lucky Bucket and Empyrean.
