Björk Eats at La Movida; The Top Gets Brief Renaissance

THE MISSION—Apparently Björk was in town last week, and ate at La Movida during her visit. Yup, instead of going to some fancy place near Union Square, she went to a casual little wine bar on 24th Street. Because she is Björk and she is amazing. [Tablehopper]

LOWER HAIGHT—A nostalgia trip on Haight Street ensued last night as Underground SF changed their sign back to that of their predecessor, The Top. It was for a house music event; The Top was one of the centerpieces of the '90s house scene. [Hoodline]

NOPA/WESTERN ADDITION—This and next Friday and Saturday, former Mill Valley Beerworks chef David Wilcox is doing a pop-up dinner series at Vinyl. Soused, as he's calling it, will offer nine family-style courses of vegetable-driven fare for $40; heritage turkey legs are also involved. A portion of the proceeds will benefit neighboring Ida B. Wells High School. [EaterWire]
