'Tis the season of pop-up restaurants, and now there's word that a couple more are headed our way this month. A pop-up, for anybody who's been missing out, is a temporary restaurant that pops up in another restaurant or a different type of space altogether. They're out in Atlanta in full force these days, as evidenced here, and now we had another two— plus a couple more pieces of pop-uppy news. Read on for the details.

1) Athens: Out at Hugh Acheson's Five & Ten, executive chef Jason Zygmont and his team will serve tonkotsu ramen every Tuesday from 5:30 p.m. until close. A bowl of the pork-based ramen will cost $14, and it's served only at the coffee bar. Reservations will not be taken, so head in early. 1073 Milledge Avenue, Athens. (706) 546-7300.

2) Midtown: Wicked heroes sandwich shop Villains, normally closed on Mondays, will now offer a themed dinner service on that day. First up: Three weeks of Puerto Rican street food cooked by guest chef Carlos Collazo starting Monday, February 17. The pop-up is called PR-184, after Puerto Rico's "pork highway," and will offer three meats—blood sausage, pernil, and masitas—, plus two sides for $12. Head in between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. for the next three Mondays. After that, the pop-up will turn paleo. 903 Peachtree Street NE; (404) 347-3335.

3) West Midtown: Last night there was another installment of mysterious poultry pop-up Underground Chicken Sandwich, helmed by The Optimist chef Adam Evans. If you've got intel on the experience, do let us know.

4) Candler Park: In this brief Q&A with Atlanta, pop-up expert Jarrett Stieber talks about the appeal of the pop-up format, his speakeasy component, and his newly launched Sunday venture at Gato.
