1) Upper West Side: Time Out New York reports that Upper East Side establishment Cascabel Taqueria opened up a new location at 2799 Broadway (at 108th.) this past Friday.

2) East Village: The team behind Brooklyn Flea and Chelsea Market staple People's Pops are opening a new pop-up location at 5 PM tomorrow at 118 1st Avenue (at E. 7th). Their new "oddball" location, a former flower cabana sandwiched in between Caracas Arepa Bar and the corner deli, will serve fresh, locally- sourced fruit pops and shaved ice. They get their fruit straight from Greenmarket, so expect the seasonal flavors to change constantly. Status: Opening Tomorrow; 118 1st Avenue, (347) 850-2388.
3) Greenwich Village: Pour George, a cross between gastropub and sports bar, opens up tomorrow night at 35 W. 8th (between 5th and 6th).

Status: Opening Tomorrow; 35 West 8th (between 5th and 6th), (212) 253-2999.
4) Hell's Kitchen: je & jo, a cookie dough ice cream parlor, opened up their first location last Wednesday. It's all old-school over there; the ice cream and cookie dough are handmade, and served in small paper cups (with the pull-off lids). Status: Certified Open; 515 West 47th (between 10th and 11th), (212) 967-4856.
