WILLIAMSBURG ? The Gohan Society is holding its 2012 Aki Matsuri, a Japanese autumn festival, on October 4 at Brooklyn Brewery. With tickets at $125, the event is a walk-around tasting with representatives from 11 different restaurants including Talde, Red Rooster, Morimoto, and Gramercy Tavern. A portion of the proceeds go to relief efforts for the 2011 Japanese earthquake. [EaterWire]

POP-UPS ? Eater National talks to a number of different chefs on the pros and cons of pop-ups, including Sarah Simmons of City Grit: "It is kind of played out. It can be a little less special because there are so many of them, but I think there's always going to be a demand for good, unique dining experiences." [Eater National]
