The rundown: Great American Music Hall occasionally flirts with pop-up food events, and the first one of the year features young cottage purveyors alongside some vets of the business. The night's menu includes choices such as white trash sushi rolls (think buffalo chicken) from Rice Cracker Sushi, sinkers by Dora's Donuts, and Asian fusion from Harro-Arigato & Ronin plus Donna's Tamales and GAMH house chef James Whitmore, whose original creations include the intriguing-sounding polenta pizza.
