Off The Grid Scoots Inside, Mission Cheese Ripens, More!

POP-UPS - This Saturday, Jackie's Vinoteca and Cafe is collaborating with the McCoppin/Mission edition of Off the Grid. You'll be able to bring any food you buy from the OTG street vendors into the space nearby at 105 Valencia Street and purchase additional goodies like booze and dessert inside. SFoodie has more details. [SFoodie]

TAX DOLLARS AT WORK - Did you know that the average participant in our 3-year-old Healthy San Francisco program is an "Asian man between the ages of 25 and 44 who speaks English, lives below the poverty level and lives in the Excelsior?"

THE MISSION - A cheese shop called Mission Cheese will be coming to Valencia between 18th and 19th in the New Year. An unruly mess of related virtual fist-pumping has ensued on the Mission Cheese blog. [Mission Cheese via Mission Mission]

WINE COUNTRY - Ubuntu will show its organic, biodynamic gardens to the public on November 18th in the first of many monthly garden tours and dinners they're planning. It starts with a walk through the gardens at 4 p.m. and ends with a six-course chef's tasting menu, served family style back at Ubuntu. For more information, call the restaurant. [EaterWire]

WINE COUNTRY EXTRA - Francis Ford Coppola is opening the public park area adjacent to his Geyservislle winery and Rustic restaurant tomorrow at 11 a.m. Take note it has a 3600-square-foot swimming pool, a truly unprecedented addition to wine country. Visitors can purchase a cabana -- they're calling them "cabines" -- for just $25/day. Signore Lucchesi has more on this. [ISSF]
