What: Namu Pop-up

Where: Four Barrel

When: Fri., January 13

Cost: $25

The rundown: Namu left a hole in the Japanese-American-Korean food scene of San Francisco when it shut down on New Year's Eve. But don't worry, Japanese-American-Korean food lovers, Namu is back with a series of pop-ups at Four Barrel. The first is this Friday, January 13, and it will feature your choice of ramen or okonomiyaki. Dennis Lee and his crew will serve up favorites like kani salad, bibim kooksoo, ramen with hand-made noodles (with pork, crab, or vegetarian), and pork, squid, or vegetable okonomiyaki. Beer from Magnolia Brewery. Wine will be available for purchase at the cash-only bar, so even if you pay online, don't forget extra groats for drinks and gratuity!

If you can't make this one, there's another dinner on January 20. The theme has yet to be determined but is between smoked BBQ and KFC (Korean Fried Chicken). Oh, and in case you're wondering if they're coming back for good, this all is in preparation for Namu Gaji, which is slated to open in late February.

Reservations available at Brown Paper Tickets.

  • 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.'"
