Croft Alley in Hollywood
West Hollywood casual spot Croft Alley is jumping into a pop-up in Hollywood. The team there is taking over The Rosy, a poolside cabana situation at the famed Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Over the summer that space was used for sparkling wine and oyster sales, but now the Croft Alley crew is bringing in a tightened version of their menu with sandwiches, snacks, and cocktails. They’ll also be opening up the place for some late-evening dinner seatings out by the pool.
Do-good coffee enterprise Rosebud Coffee is now up and running in Pasadena. The shop at 2302 E. Colorado Blvd. is doing hours Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Get in the fold
Daily Dose in Downtown is doing new wraps and folds (aka burritos and tacos) as part of a menu revamp. The longstanding Arts District eatery will over things like a $10 scrambled egg breakfast burrito with prosciutto and goat cheese, or $6 duck confit folds.
Story Tavern x Stone Brewing
There’s a big tap takeover by Stone Brewing happening at Story Tavern in Burbank on October 20. The event will actually feature an appearance by Steve Wagner, co-founder of Stone Brewing himself, so it should be a pretty fun and rare opportunity to drink and mingle with bigwigs from the craft beer universe.
Bakers Will Bake, again
There’s another Bakers Will Bake event coming up soon, as Friends & Family owner Roxana Jullapat takes to the Hollywood Farmers Market with friends for a big charity event on Sunday, October 22. The whole thing goes down from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the aim of raising cash for The Farm to Face Environmental Program at Thomas Starr King Middle School. Expect other faces like Shannon Swindle of Craft, Sherry Yard, Na Young Ma of Proof, and more.
