    Pop-ups, churches, and studios
      Though it won’t be opening until next year, the future Mexican restaurant Pancito & Lefty held a pop-up dinner at Faculty Lounge on Thursday. The location will be on up-upper King Street in the old Zappo’s Pizza and food will (presumably) not be prepped on a re-purposed pool table as it was at Faculty Lounge — though kudos for the impromptu use of space.

    RIP, Gee
      On a somber Wednesday, I headed to Republic for their event honoring Gary “Gee” Alameda, our local favorite hot dog street vendor, friend, peacemaker, bodyguard, and hero. I was last at Republic on the fateful night of his untimely passing and his infectious presence was very much felt.
