The Daily Meal brings you the biggest news from the food world.

Where to Get Booze and Fast Food: Fast-food chains are trying to up the competition by adding alcohol to their menus, with places like Shake Shack, Steak 'n Shake, Baja Fresh, and Chipotle leading the way. [Slate]

Anthony Bourdain Praises Eddie Huang, not Anne Burrell: Bourdain talks up Huang's writing and "his merciless wit," while saying, "If you can’t make fun of Burrell and Fieri, comedy’s dead." [Observer]

Rick Bayless' Theater Review: The New York Times reviews Cascabel, where chef Rick Bayless "does not exactly radiate natural stage charisma, although he acquits himself well enough in the delivery of his lines." [NY Times]

Best Cities for All the Hipsters: If you're a hipster, you should probably read this guide to figure out your next vacation. [Travel + Leisure]

Pat LaFrieda Targets Wendy's: After Wendy's debuted a "Black Label" burger in areas outside New York, New York butcher Pat LaFrieda sent a cease and desist letter to the fast-food chain, claiming ownership of the name. LaFrieda's meat is used in Minetta Tavern's Black Label Burger. [NY Post]

Oakland’s relationship to San Francisco often inspires comparison to Brooklyn’s relationship to Manhattan: It’s the bigger city’s hipper, more relaxed neighbor, where creativity thrives and anything that buzzes tends to get its start. (I’ll refrain from using words like “hipster” and “gentrification” here.)

But Oakland is much more than San Francisco’s happenin’ sidekick. It’s a multi-cultural destination unto itself, with world-class attractions including Jack London Square, Lake Merritt, the Fox Theater, the Oakland Zoo, Children’s Fairyland, Temescal Alley, funky Telegraph Avenue, and the Coliseum (where the As play), adjacent to the Oakland Arena, where the Golden State Warriors saw their historic rise. No wonder almost 4 million people travel here every year.

And 2020 looks particularly promising for “the Town” to be one of the best cities in America to visit, what with the Oakland Museum of California poised to get a makeover in summer, and Oakland International Airport debuting 17 new eateries—including Brown Sugar Kitchen, Tay Ho, and A16—over the course of the year. It’s also the 130th birthday of the nearby University of California Botanical Garden at Berkeley.

These days, major companies call Oakland home, including Pandora, Kaiser Permanente, the Sierra Club, and VSCO, whose trendy app is giving Instagram a run for its money—and whose building offers a gear-packed, free-to-use studio space for social media-ready photo shoots. Other of-the-moment places to be in this town of more than 1,000 murals include Super Juiced, Swan’s Market, Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park, bars like Drexl, and beer gardens like Temescal Brewing and Lost & Found. Try to be here in early March so you can bring something home from the epic flea market that is the White Elephant Sale.

Where to stay: The Claremont Club & Spa, a Fairmont hotel, was built in 1915 to overlook the San Francisco Bay. It sports a luxurious old-money feel with fine dining, an extensive spa, and elegant rooms. But this country club-style hotel is also surprisingly family-friendly: The cost of your stay (or even just the cost of your spa treatment or restaurant meal) also covers three hours of daily childcare at the fun-filled Kids’ Club.
