This Friday March 29th, catch some special bar eats at ~RYE~, where Chrissy’s Waffles will be popping up from 5:30pm-8:30pm. The waffle pop-up has become a standing Friday night event, called Waffles and Whiskey, and features a different waffle and whiskey cocktail each week. This week, look for a bacon doughnut waffle and the Crimp’s Buck, which is rye, ginger syrup, soda, and bitters. The waffle always costs $5, and the cocktail varies from $7-10. 688 Geary St. at Leavenworth, 415-474-4448.

If you plan it right, you can actually check out a bar pop-up just about every night of the week. Taco maven Tango & Stache pops up at ~BIG~ on Monday nights at 6pm, and at ~RYE~ on Wednesday nights at 5:30pm. Check Facebook and Twitter for each night’s menu; previous options include milk punch pork tostadas with cacao nib and fenugreek gremolata and a fried duck egg, and rye-braised pork shoulder with bacon fat and caraway tortillas and cabbage fennel slaw. Not too shabby at all. Nope. Big, 761 Post St. at Leavenworth, no phone.

Looking for some rockin’ cookies? Emily Luchetti, the pastry chef at ~WATERBAR~ and ~FARALLON~ has created a full lineup of Giants-inspired cookies that will be offered at a bake sale in front of Waterbar on Friday April 5th from 11am-3pm (or whenever they sell out). Cookie flavors include the classic Buster’s Chocolate Chunk, Matt’s Bourbon Old-Fashioned Pitcherdoodles, and a Cracker Jack-inspired snack, Bochy’s Peanut Popcorn Clusters. So get your baseball puns ready, and head on down. All cookie bags are $5, and proceeds go to Cookies for Kids Cancer.
