Cheapflights.com begins its pop-up culinary tour in Portland, Oregon. Tacos? Check. Tequila? Also check. TD’s PopUp is an offshoot of Portland’s Three Degrees restaurant and the theme is simple: tacos and tequila served up on the banks of the Willamette River courtesy of Chef Thomas Dunklin. The tiny 10-seat counter-service pop-up runs along the waterfront until October from noon to 8 p.m. Image: Three Degrees TD’s PopUp

EatWith isn’t so much a traditional pop-up restaurant, but an off-the-cuff dining experience you won’t get anywhere else. Chefs vetted by EatWith put together dinners based on whatever inspires them and menus are listed on the EatWith site. The fun starts when you search for menus in your city (or whatever city you happen to be in). Once you find one that intrigues you, make a reservation and the host will send you the address. It’s a fun mix of good food with a dash of intrigue. Image: Didriks, Toasting the Entree via Flickr CC BY 2.0

What’s better than a pop-up restaurant? A pop-up beach of course. Camden Beach at the Roundhouse in London sees a parking lot transformed into a tropical beach from July 17 to August 23. 150 tonnes of sand gets brought in to create the urban beach experience, which also includes several pop-up dining spots. Choose from a fish and chip shop, a shipping container turned into a craft ale and cider shop also selling sausages and a van dedicated to doling out Stoli Lemonades. . Full article
