EaterWire: Rick Bayless in Town, Mekong Megone

UNION SQUARE—This weekend is truly a star-studded affair for San Francisco. Not only is Fear Factor's Joe Rogan headlining Cobb's tonight (that's big time), but Rick Bayless, absent at the Frontera Fresco opening some weeks ago, will be very much present at Macy's, tomorrow at 2pm. Bonus: "The first 50 guests in line will receive a complimentary Frontera gift." Reports from the scene are very much encouraged (submit to sf@eater.com), especially those regarding the exact nature of said complimentary Frontera gifts; our fingers are crossed for a Bayless bobblehead.

TENDERLOIN—As suspected earlier, Mekong will indeed be changing hands and shifting its focus from vegan Thai to halal Thai. The answering machine evidence follows, in a robot-like voice, sans pause: "Hello, you've reached Mekong Restaurant we will be opening again on the 19th of January god willing under new ownership we will be Bong Sen (?) Halal Thai cuisine all our meats will be halal no steroid or hormones and we will have a 100% vegetarian menu hope to see you." [EaterWire]
