Your weekly guide to SF's best pop-ups and temporary restaurants.

Hella Vegan Eats

When: Friday and Saturday

Where: Dolores Park

Cost: $5-$10

The Rundown: In the likely case that the sun will still be shining in mid-November and you're probably day drinking at Dolores Park, Hella Vegan Eats will be curbside so you don't have to stumble elsewhere. Mack on their vegan mac 'n' cheese, or their Lusty Lover Tacos with butternut squash, a persimmon BBQ sauce, and spicy chipotle corn flakes served over a corn tortilla. The croissants they make for their BLTA envelop smoky maple gluten bacon, organic greens, avocado, and tomato.

Pan Grill Sandwich Shop

When: Wed-Sun 11a.m. - 3p.m.

Where: Butterfly

Cost: $7-$10

The Rundown: A new lunchtime pop up by chef/owner Rob Lam of Butterfly brings milk bun sandwiches to the Embarcadero. The lunch window operates on the southern end of the restaurant. All sandwiches are $7, and include pork katsu with yuzu slaw, kimchi pulled pork with mizuna, and hanger steak with a scallion-chimichurri sauce.

Waiheke Island Yacht Club

When: Everyday until Dec. 31

Where: Pier 29

Cost: $40-$145

The Rundown: Now that the city has moved into post-America's Cup mode, this chic pop-up has found anchor at Pier 29 until the end of the year. Inspired by the dreamy Waiheke Island off the coast of New Zealand, kiwi Tony Stewart has brought the elegant fare to the Embarcadero. Sip a New Zealand beer or wine while savoring the rich, silky venison tartare accompanied by oysters, radishes, and grated horseradish. Brunch, lunch, and tasting menus are also available.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
