FREEBIEWIRE — Tonight (July 13) from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Som Bar (2925 16th St.), "Junk Food" features one-hit wonders and other trashy and guilty musical pleasures by DJs Prince Aries, Illeffect, and Cedication.Crimes. Complimentary Jack in the Box tacos help to flesh out the theme. What, Taco Bell was too expensive? [EaterWire]

FOOD TRUCKS — ArKi, which regularly appears at Soma StrEat Food Park and Off The Grid's UN Plaza market, has an off-menu item called the Dough Boy, a fried chicken sandwich that uses freshly fried donuts for the bun. A customer's dream actualized, it's only been made once before but can now be considered fair game to order. [SFoodie]

UNION SQUARE — Yigit Pura's Tout Sweet (170 O'Farrell), due August 25, is going to be decked out in white and pink; a place where you will want to take the messy stuff to go. He's also working on a cookbook called Sweet Alchemy for release in September 2013. [ISSF]
