FREEBIE WIRE - Now that the Chile Pies location you see here has been open in the Castro for almost a month, they're ready to celebrate by offering freebies all day long on Saturday and Sunday. From noon to 10 p.m. they'll be doling out free scoops of Three Twins ice cream and samples of green chile stew, New Mexican red chile chicken posole and Frito pie. Oh, the power of the freebie.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES - The reinvention of one-time three star golden child Postrio continues with none other than a series of Wednesday night pizza dinners featuring a list of edibles priced under $10. The menu sent over the EaterWire includes four wood-fired pizza options, starters like chicken wings and wines and beers at average prices. It's a pizza party at Postrio. [EaterWire]

FOOD TRUCKS - William Lue founded Burma Superstar, then sold it to its successful new owners in the 1980's. Now SFoodie reports that he's taken over a food truck on Townsend and Fourth and christened it Burmese Gourmet. It's there every day, serving tea leaf salad, catfish chowder over noodles, and such. Everything is under $5. [SFoodie]

MEAT WIRE - Show Dogs has employed in-house charcutier, Peter Temkin, who will concentrate on creating new specialty sausages like wild boar and chicken curry. [EaterWire]
