Return of The Pizza Hacker, Lafitte FU Foie Dinner, More

FIGHTING FOIE - Lafitte's Russell Jackson has released tickets to his second "FU Foie: ReDucks" 5-course foie gras tasting dinner to take place on Nov. 26. Reserve here and note there's also a place to make donations to the "Fight the Ban" foie gras fund, should you so desire. [EaterWire]

DAILY CANDY BUYS THE FEAST - NBC's The Feast has been gobbled up by DailyCandy, which plans on keeping the brand around until early next year when it will be more fully integrated into the online newsletter. Grub Street hears Feast head honcho Ben Leventhal will "at least see The Feast through a transition to DailyCandy" and then go back to NBC. [paidContent, GSNY]

POP-UPS - Starting tonight, the sorely missed The Pizza Hacker is back to his regular pop-up ways. In case you're not familiar with the Hacker, it's a little pizza operation run by Jeff Krupman who bases his dough on Tartine's bread recipe. He'll be at Vinyl Wine Bar (359 Divisadero St.) this evening from 6:30 to 10 p.m. and, we're told, this is going to be a regular thing on all Thursdays going forward. [EaterWire]

MEANWHILE THE SFPD - A fictional depiction of what San Francisco would look like if there was such a thing as a Dunkin' Donuts food truck. You know it might not be too far off. [Ice Tubes via Mission Mission, EaterWire]

GUEST CHEFS - Since he's something of a free agent while The Dining Room at the Ritz-Carlton goes under the knife to become Parallel 37, chef Ron Siegel gets to do pop-up dinners now, and word just came over the EaterWire that he'll be cooking a $75 five-courser at Baker & Banker on November 9th. Book by calling the restaurant. [EaterWire]
