There are pop-up cinemas, cafes and restaurants.

Now, there’s the first “Reboot Shop Hanukkah Pop-Up” on Union Street in San Francisco.

So, what does that mean for the average passerby during the holiday season?

Well, there is dreidel gaming night with Mazel Tov cocktails (yes, those!), a reading by author Daniel Handler - best known under his pen name Lemony Snicket, and his wife, and illustrator and author Lisa Brown. There will also be a film screening of 50/50 created by award-winning filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, and a lunchtime concert co-presented by Noise Pop with Luther Dickinson, former lead guitarist for The Black Crowes, Jeremiah Lockwood of The Sway Machinery and Ethan Miller of Howlin' Rain.

Plus, the pop-up will sell all sorts of trinkets including a cell phone sleeping bag, and ‘Twas the Night Before Hanukkah CD box set, a DIY ugly Hanukkah sweater and more.

The pop-up will be up from Dec. 15 to Dec. 18 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Partners In Crime, 1749 Union Street. Hanukkah this year begins on Christmas Eve and lasts through sundown on New Year's Day.
