Bad Saint, D.C.'s anticipated Filipino restaurant, has been keeping opening details pretty close to the vest. But last night, the restaurant urged customers to come in on Facebook and Twitter, quietly opening doors to customers at 3226 11th St. NW. Izakaya Seki even wished the restaurant "Happy Birthday" on opening night. Eater has reached out for any further details on the long-awaited project, which met its Kickstarter goal last month and is likely in soft-opening mode now. Naturally, there's already a Yelp review of the place.

After more than a year in business, Sona Creamery is actually a creamery. Regulatory hurdles had held up the wine bar's ability to make its own cheese, but those issues have now been resolved, Young & Hungry reports. [WCP]
It's not even fall yet, and this happens: Dogfish Head Alehouse has put a pumpkin spice latte burger on its menu this week. Burger Days (reluctantly) describes it as "a half-pound wood-grilled beef patty topped with pumpkin pie-spiced mascarpone along with a Starbucks molasses drizzle." [BD]
Speaking of pumpkin
Pumpkin beer season is now official. And DC Beer doesn't want you to drink it. Instead, they say go for wet-hop beers, dark lagers, brown ales, etc. [DCB]
Requiem for a refrigerator
Cheesetique in Del Ray is down a refrigerator case for its cheese. And so the staff has been hilariously writing eulogies for it, including "That'll do, fridge, that'll do" and "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to diss a brie..." See the memorial on the actual dead fridge in the Alexandria cheese shop and wine bar.
