Blogger Casualty At Mission Pop-Up, Spoonbar Expands, More!

POP-UP DANGER - Mission Mission blogger Andrew Sarkarati innocently hit up the Rice Paper Scissors pop-up last night and went home with a dislocated shoulder. After using his blogger cred to cut the line, things went south: "the crowd figured out what was going on, and a little brawl ensued. Somebody grabbed his pho, there was pushing and shoving and shouting. And then he found himself falling backward over one of the restaurant’s little red stools, and onto another, at just right (wrong) angle." [Mission Mission]

EXPANSIONWIRE - Healdsburg's H2hotel is smartly doubling its bar area to allow startender Scott Beattie to do more. They are also adding wine on-tap and more small bites. It's not surprising that's the best part of Spoonbar's business; high-quality drinks on the fly don't come easy in wine country. Times are tough. [ISSF]

NOW OPEN - A reminder that Nojo in Hayes Valley and Bun Mee in Pacific Heights are now open and ready for your weekend enjoyment. The Chron's Janny Hu has this recap of her dinner at Nojo last night. Early reports, go! [EaterWire, ISSF]

THE SHUTTER - Berkeley's 52-year-old La Fiesta Restaurant went out with a bang and is now closed. It will be replaced by Remy's Mexican Restaurant, owned by one Manny Lopez. [Berkeleyside]

TENDERLOIN - Jebena coffee shop at Geary and Polk is putting the final touches on an extension next door, serving La Copa Loca gelato and sweet and savory crepes made by a real French chef. Passersby may not have noticed because the gelato sign keeps getting stolen. [The Tender]
