And Now, Your Weekly Pop-Up Report


The fabulous Afro Urbanites event flyer.

This Saturday August 27th, swing by ~COFFEE BAR~ for a modern, regional Ethiopian dinner by the Afro Urbanites (some of you may be familiar with these two Ethiopian/Somali women through their Selam pop-up events at Guerilla Cafe in Berkeley). There will be two seatings (6:30pm and 8:15pm) for the three-course meal (with a vegetarian option), and an Ethiopian coffee roasted onsite. $35. Reserve here.

Fan’s of Preeti Mistry’s SoMa pop-up ~JUHU BEACH CLUB~ will be sorry to learn Friday is her last day in the current spot. She’s looking for a permanent location where she can do both lunch and dinner, and hopefully serve beer and wine. Stand by for updates. 320 11th St. at Folsom.

I received a note from Joanna Karlinsky of Meetinghouse biscuit fame about her new Sunday brunch at ~THE CORNER~ called Sweet Jo’s Chili & Biscuits while she looks for a more permanent location. On the menu: Meetinghouse biscuits with toppings such as pork sausage gravy, Meyer lemon curd, and collard greens and ham hock stew. There will also be an array of her delicious chilis to eat on premise or to take to go. Sun 10:30am-2:30pm.

She is also going to be serving Thursday and Friday supper at ~OASIS CAFE~, starting at 6pm. 901 Divisadero St. at McAllister.
