Cofax heads to Button Mash
It’s Dodgers home opener day, which means, of course, breakfast burritos. To help coax you to the stadium, Cofax is partnering up with Button Mash in Echo Park for a one-day breakfast burrito pop-up on their sidewalk. Burritos will run $7 (cash only) and be available from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There are two versions, one with Vietnamese pork, and one vegetarian, so you’ve really got no excuse.

Just the other day, Kris Yenbamroong took to his Instagram to extol the virtues of Baroo, and along the way mentioned a possible fried chicken pop-up featuring the two-man Baroo team. And, while nothing is officially confirmed as of yet, the Baroo guys gave their approval in the comments section, which means it could be on and happening. That would be awesome.
