Pop-ups have become so ubiquitous that now major weekly publications have started tracking them along with other food events.
Samples from a recent planner:

When: Thurs., Sept. 20, 6:30 p.m.
Cost: $110 (purchase tickets in advance via Book Passage)
The rundown: Renowned LA chef and restaurateur Susan Feniger celebrates the release of her new book with a dinner featuring many recipes taken from STREET Food: Irresistibly Crispy, Creamy, Crunchy, Spicy, Sticky, Sweet Recipes. The event, held in conjunction with the food-loving folks at Book Passage, includes passed appetizers, “interactive stations,” a family-style meal and take-home spices, all designed to highlight street food dishes from across the world.
Tango & Stache-Up

The rundown: Encouraged by the recent event at Asiento, Tango & Stache is filling up its pop-up dance card with more meals. Head Stache Joshua Wilder Oakley serves up fare such as Negroni pork butt, which has been the T&S calling card in its short history, but he also plans to expand his offerings for this event. The menu will be posted on the event’sFacebook page when it is finalized.
