ABC WIRE - Osaka Japanese restaurant at 1923 Fillmore Street had its beer and wine license suspended for the second time this year. Apparently they're having trouble with the collections agent. Their website's home page is also exhibiting strange behavior. [EaterWire]

DERBY DAYS - Hog & Rocks is having a Kentucky Derby party tomorrow and the best Derby hat wins a bottle of Maker's Mark. The chefs will also be throwing hot dogs on the griddle and slinging mint juleps from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Arrive dressed in your Derby finest to receive "special privileges." [EaterWire]

THE MISSION - Yes Bombay Bazar has been born again, but is a life without ice cream scoops even worth living? SFoodie informs us the new location is only offering its famous ice cream by the pint, although its days on South Van Ness are really just prep for a move back to Valencia Street. [SFoodie]

COMING ATTRACTIONS - Sir Paolo has the lineup for the 2011 Cochon 555 in San Francisco. On June 5th, Ravi Kapur (Prospect), Matthew Accarino (SPQR), David Bazirgan (Fifth Floor), David Varley (Michael Mina) and the team of Brandon Jew and Salvatore Cracco (Bar Agricole) will face off with their respective whole hogs. They don't have a location yet, but that doesn't mean you can't buy tickets.

BAR WIRE - Lots of love for the Koko's Cocktails team today. The Examiner has an interview with owner Justin Mulford. And The Tender reports the owners new Polk Gulch bar Hi-Lo Club was unanimously approved by the Planning Commission. [Examiner, TT]

POP-UPS - Mojo Bicycle Cafe is doing its next pop-up supper club on Wednesday the 11th. $26 buys an amuse, followed by little gems, slow-roasted pork shoulder and coffee pudding with cinnamon cream for dessert. Call 415-440-2338 for reservations. [EaterWire]
