WESTERN ADDITION/NOPA—Fans of Sneaky's BBQ will be pleased to learn that chefs Ben Thorne and Pat Wachter are returning to the pop-up scene after their steady gig at Rebel fell through. Their new home is Vinyl Coffee & Wine Bar on Divis, where they can be found dishing up pulled pork, pork belly, and "BBQuban" sandwiches every other Wednesday, starting the day after tomorrow.

BERKELEYEat + Lounge, the restaurant that replaced Sea Salt on San Pablo Avenue, has closed after fewer than two months in business. There's no word as of yet as to why the restaurant rose and fell so quickly, but a paltry seven reviews in this Yelp-happy town definitely hint at low customer traffic. [Inside Scoop]

SOMA—The San Francisco Museum and Historical Society is trying to encourage the young folks of our fair city to get excited about history with a party at the Old Mint next Thursday, featuring talks about SF's past from the likes of Broke-Ass Stuart and Cantina's Duggan McDonnell, plus pisco drinks and 21st Amendment beer. Tickets are $10 and will help fund a new SF history museum. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION—Before Commonwealth, Mission Chinese Food, and the rise of Danny Bowien, household name, there was a single sandwich: the PB&J, Anthony Myint's pork belly and jicama flatbread. Turns out it was revived for one night at Friday's anniversary party for The Galley pop-up inside Clooney's. We miss this amazing sandwich, and are green with envy. [Mission Mission]
