UNION SQUARE— The people of Nepal still need help after last month's devastating earthquake. To support the relief effort, Campton Place will host a benefit dinner, donating at least 70 percent of the proceeds to The Seva Foundation. The four-course menu will take place Monday, May 25; seatings vary. Reservations can be made here. [EaterWire]

MISSIONAl's Place, which debuted in February, is already planning some upgrades to the space. They plan to close from May 29-June 7 to take care of some plumbing and electrical work, seismic upgrades and the transformation of the basement into a prep kitchen. Business will resume as usual on June 10. [Tablehopper]

SAN FRANCISCO— Caviar Fastbite is adding the burritos of Señor Sisig to the roster, with the promise of delivery in as fast as 10 minutes. The partnership started today, May 22, offering burritos at the touch of an app— way easier than tracking down one of those constantly moving trucks. [EaterWire]

NORTH BEACH— Rumors are flying about the possible shut-down of treasured dive bar, Mr. Bing's. Hoodline reports that the building or the bar (or both) could be sold, leaving the aged watering hole's future up in the air. And despite the proliferation of fancy cocktail bars in the neighborhood, Mr. Bing's does scratch a certain itch (possibly from the rash you caught from drinking there). [Hoodline]
