INGLESIDEAccording to the Chowhound crew, there's some scuttlebutt that beloved Oakland Laotian spot Champa Garden may be opening an offshoot in Ingleside. We've reached out to them and will share more details as they come in. [Chowhound]

THE MISSIONStuffed, the pierogi spot that's been in the works at 24th and Mission for some time, appears to be getting close, but they need a last infusion of $10K to get off the ground, for which they've turned to Indiegogo. $25 buys a ticket to one of their opening parties, on June 21st and 22nd.

HAIGHT-ASHBURY—Some bar shakeups have gone down at the Alembic after longtime bar manager Daniel Hyatt left and joined the upcoming Roka Akor. Former bartender Danny Louie is now co-managing the bar with Ethan Terry, who was most recently at AQ. (They also collaborated on now-defunct consultancy Cocktail Lab, which also featured Terry's AQ colleague Timothy Zohn.) Terry will handle operations, and the duo will craft a new cocktail list together. [Tablehopper]

CASTROA sign of life is finally occurring at the long-shuttered The Patio: they'll be hosting charity gift store Under One Roof (which decamped to the Crocker Galleria last year) for a pop-up beginning on June 7th. It'll run through Labor Day weekend, at which time The Patio might see a revival. Of course, it's been ten years, so no one's getting their hopes up too high. [Castro Biscuit]
