SOUTH PARK — American Grilled Cheese Kitchen (1 South Park) hosts "Pizza & Pitchers" with the ever-busy monster truck Del Popolo and local brewers Pacific Brew Labs, Linden Street Brewing, and Firestone Walker Brewery from 5-9 p.m. on July 19. [EaterWire]

JACKSON SQUARE — An upscale Japanese steak and sushi restaurant called Roka Akor (500 Jackson) is set to open its third American location in San Francisco. This fills a vacancy left by once-prospective tenant Aziza, which had hoped to relocate there from the Richmond District. An opening date has not been set for this specialist of robatayaki (grilling on a robata over oak charcoal). [ISSF]

POP-UPS — East Bay caterer Our Cuban Kitchen is serving dinner at Berkeley's Guerilla Cafe (1620 Shattuck) from 6-9:30 p.m. on Saturdays in July (14, 21, 28). Called Cuban Nights, it's traditional all the way with the dishes, drinks, and music, but further menu details have been so far kept under wraps. [EaterWire]

FOODLANTHROPY — As determined by public vote, Incanto (1550 Church) honcho Chris Cosentino currently sits in second place in this year's Celebrity Chef Sandwich Charity Challenge. A win for Cosentino's Sicilian pork belly sandwich would earn $10,000 to be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help the organization's efforts to find a cure for Parkinson's disease.
