4505 Chicharrones Hiatus; Rich Table Takes Sundays

OUR BROKEN HEARTS4505 Meats made a wrenching announcement today: their famous chicharrones are being taken off the shelves for a few months while they try to improve their labeling and packaging. The only sources for the porkaliciousness in the meantime will be their butcher shop, farmer's-market stands, and online store, which is still a lot of places. But what will we impulse-buy after two drinks at Bloodhound now, Ryan Farr? [EaterWire]

HAYES VALLEY—If you've been looking to get your Rich Table fix on Tuesdays, look no more; they're expanding to seven nights a week beginning June 1. [Grub Street]

THE MISSION—As you stroll the Mission for Sunday Streets this weekend, be sure to take a moment to stop by La Victoria Bakery for a pop-up by Luis Villavelazquez of Les Elements. Though he consults on special pastries for La Victoria, this is a unique chance to sample the rest of the former Absinthe pastry chef's offerings there, like a white-chocolate and olive-oil sticky bun, maple-bacon custard, and oatmeal raisin and coriander cookies. He'll be there from 10 am-1 pm. [EaterWire]

HAYES VALLEY—After Electrolux made them ditch the name Kelvin for their ice-cream machine, Smitten Ice Cream solicited new names from the populace, and they've picked a winner: Brrr. (Somehow, they were able to trademark this, which surprises us.) This is mainly so they can call their ice-cream staff Brrr-istas, which we think is pretty brrr-azen. [Hayeswire]
