Clooney's Starts Cooking, La Cocina @ Whole Foods, More

THE MISSION - Clooney's pub is going to soft-launch a food program this weekend with things like a grilled PBJ with homemade jam and a French onion sandwich. The cooks are calling the kitchen part of things "The Galley." More here. [SFoodie]

UPPER HAIGHT - This Sunday, the not-officially opened Whole Foods on Stanyan Street will host a Good Food Celebration from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Some major players from La Cocina's ethnic street food contingency will be parked in the lot out front and a bunch of specialty beers will be offered.

POP-UPS - There are loads of pop-up trailblazers circling about town these days, but are most of them any good? SFoodie stopped by Sushi Somewhere's appearance at The Corner on Wednesday and seems to think this one is worth hitting up: "The nigiri stayed together, there were no loose grains of rice, and the fish showed good knife skills - all pretty much on par with what you can get at a decent American sushi place." [SFoodie]

V-DAY - Another Monday holiday event to consider happens at Samovar Tea Lounge's rooftop Yerba Buena location with a launch party for John Stevens Tantra of the Tachikawa Ryu: Secret Sex Teachings of the Buddha. Apparently this is the first time Stevens has passed on these "esoteric" teachings in English. More info and tickets here. [EaterWire]

ARTISAN WIRE - Locally made Droga confections hit the shelves at Williams-Sonoma across the country today. The candy is inspired by a family recipe for salted peanut rocky road and the name means "drug" in Italian. [EaterWire]

CITRUS TIME! - Clock Bar has a new cocktail menu featuring pint upon pint of in-season local citrus: blood oranges, regular oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruits, cara caras, you name it. [EaterWire]
