Burmese flavors take us to Burlingame this week with stir-fry dishes that are neither too hot nor too spicy at Mingalaba Restaurant. But if you get a late-night hankering, while you're in the Cow Hollow district of San Francisco, the pub favorites at The Brazen Head are sure to hit the spot. Finally, we end with a love letter to the islands in the form of elevated Hawaiian cuisine at āina in San Francisco's Dogpatch.

2016 Chronic Cellars ‘Pink Pedals’ Rosé, Paso Robles, California $15
The idea behind Chronic Cellars is to make seriously killer wine without taking themselves too seriously. Winemakers, Josh and Jake Beckett, are Paso Robles locals who wanted to launch a brand focused on easy-sipping wines made with great grapes. They call their label designs “off-color-yet-full-of-color” and the blonde skeleton pedaling a bike on this pink makes a sassy statement. A wallop of Grenache grapes with a splash of Syrah makes a succulent, watermelon and green apple-scented, dry-styled rosé perfect to pedal your cares away.
