SAN FRANCISCO— Everybody get in line now: Pitmaster Aaron Franklin, of Austin's iconic Franklin Barbecue, plans to bring his brisket to a San Francisco pop-up sometime in May 2015. According to Eater SF, the exact dates and location have yet to be announced, but Franklin confirms the event will take place "for a few days" while he's promoting his upcoming cookbook. Details as they become available. [ESF]

VARIOUS LOCATIONS— New York City's beloved, simply named food cart the Halal Guys have major expansion plans in the works: Foodbeast reports the brand has signed on new franchisees in San Francisco, the East Bay, and Las Vegas. In summer 2014, Halal's three founders announced they'd partnered with franchise consulting firm Fransmart to open as many as 100 locations internationally. In December 2014, both Washington, DC and Houston received their first confirmed Halal Guys sightings. [Foodbeast]

SPAIN— New York City chef Seamus Mullen (Tertulia) is the latest to hop on the chef-goes-on-vacation bandwagon: According to a press release, Mullen will act as host during a summer "Chef on Wheels" bike tour of Costa Brava, Spain. The trip, scheduled for June 28 to July 3, 2015, will include one dinner at the three-Michelin starred El Celler de Can Roca, plus cooking classes and market trips with Mullen. For information here.
