The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Turnover turnabout: Inside Scoop reports on Manuel Godino's plans to move Venga Empanadas into its very own 10-seat brick-and-mortar at 443 Valencia (at 15th St.). Launch date: In about two weeks. SFoodie offers two words of advice for Godino: wheelchair ramp.

When did "guest chef" turn into "pop-up"? Maybe you've heard: Jeremy Fox is doing a pop-up at Atelier Crenn Mar. 28. That's sort of like saying that Herbert Blomstedt guest-conducting the New World symphony at Davies next week is a Dvořák pop-up.

Bar wars: Eater talks to Rye and 15 Romolo founders Jon Gasparini and Greg Lindgren, who seem to be challenging Bourbon and Branch for Total Barstool Dominance via still-emerging plans for a Eurobar at 603 Mission (at Jessie). It's on like ― whatever the European equivalent of Donkey Kong is.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
