EVENT WIRE—Brightest Young Things is teaming up with the soon-to-launch Union Market for what they're dubbing a Summer Picnic Spectacular. And the lineup is spectacular indeed: Scott Drewno, Victor Albisu, Jeff Black, RJ Cooper, Boqueria, Oyamel, Hill Country, Peregrine and a whole lot more. Presale tickets are a mere $5 for the event that runs from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday. Alert: There will also be a waterslide and a moonbounce. [EaterWire]

EVERYWHERE—Seen some guerrilla Pleasant Pops advertising around the city lately? Well, don't blame Pleasant Pops if these are illegally posted. The City Paper reports that while they did commission these posters from a local artist in anticipation of the opening of their first brick-and-mortar, but it was the artist who has been pasting them up around town.
