Soccer Fans, Heads Up! Starting this Thursday, K & L Bistro (119 S. Main St., Sebastopol) opens at 8 a.m. daily, with a special breakfast menu. The special morning hours continue through the final game of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which takes place on July 13.
A breakfast version of Brazil's national dish, feijoada, will be among the morning selections, as will oysters.
The first game is broadcast daily at 9 a.m. All games will be broadcast in the restaurant's spiffy new bar, while lunch and dinner service continue as usual in the new dining room.
Lucas and Karen Martin own the restaurant and share chef duties but Lucas is the one with the long-term soccer passion. When he was 18, he played for the national team in the World Youth Cup in Chile.
For reservations, call 823-6614 or visit klbistro.com.
Carnivores head to Healdsburg Shed: On Father's Day, Healdsburg Shed (25 North St.) welcomes Patrick Martins and Mike Edison, authors of a new book, “The Carnivore's Manifesto.” From 10:30 a.m. until noon, they will share their passions, opinions — for example, they want foodies to stop making their own mayonnaise because Best Foods already exists, and they want PETA to stop its attack on fur coats — and heritage ribs.
