Amateur Hour — "We're here to make a dining experience that's accessible and affordable for everyone," says Amateur Hour founders Cat Lamb and D.J. Piazza. The duo's first pop-up takes place on September 24, at 7:00 p.m., in the Counter Culture Coffee Training Center on Spring Street. The theme of the dinner is Let's (Not) Get Wasted, as the team will use ingredients that might normally be thrown away. While Lamb and Piazza have worked in kitchens, they say, "We readily admit that we're not 'Chefs' and we want to share what we do have to share with whoever will listen and eat!" Tickets are only $15 and are available online. [EaterWire]

2 Nixons — Chef Jeffrey Stoneberger (formerly of Two Boroughs Larder) wants to bring kick-ass ramen to Charleston. While he schemes his brothy empire, Stoneberger will share his ramen research with a pop-up at Frothy Beard Brewing on September 30 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (or until the bowls run out). Everything will be homemade, including the noodles. The name 2 Nixons comes from the history of Richard Nixon traveling to China and attending a televised dinner — shortly after, Chinese restaurants flourished in the United States.  [EaterWire]
