TOP CHEFFAGE - GrubStreet has the buzz on everyone's favorite Hubert Keller, who is doing a demo at Macy's in Union Square tomorrow night. He'll show how he pairs food with Waterford Crystal because he's very fancy. Apparently there's free food, too. RSVP is a must, honey. [GrubStreet]

EVENT PLANNING - Dust off your dancing shoes and Clipper card, because the whole goal of tomorrow (Nov. 23rd) night's Island Style Shake up event at The Burritt Room is to get you drunk and busting a hula. Oh, and to raise money for the incredibly worthy nonprofit, SPARK. For added fun, five featured bartenders will compete in a final shake off for the best new take on classic Hawaiian cocktails. Aloha! [EaterWire]

THE MARINA - As we previously reported, the gentleman behind Tipsy Pig, Mamacita, Blue Barn, and Umami are looking for a space to house their new burger restaurant, tentatively named Flips and Floats. They were evidently eyeing a location at Fillmore and Filbert in the Marina but according to Inside Scoop, it's now a no-go because neighbors are worried about noise. Might we suggest Ike Place's old spot? Joke! [ISSF]

THANKSGIVING REMIX - A person can eat only so many Tofurkey sandwiches before wanting to jump out a window, but never fear! Bay Area Bites has tips from five Bay Area chefs on how to "remix" holiday leftovers. Let's innovate in the kitchen! With help from professionals! [Bay Area Bites]

BURRITOS! - Nominate your friends to be judges in 7x7's burrito-off. For real. I nominate Burrito Justice because, duh. [7x7]

BEHIND THE SCENES - Inside Scoop kicks off its series chronicling the trials and tribulations of a chef new to an established restaurant. The chef in question is David Bazirgan and the restaurant is, of course, The Fifth Floor. An intimidating prospect, no doubt, but Bazirgan seems ready to kick ass and take names. [ISSF]
