NW/ALPHABET DISTRICT—Chef BJ Smith's Smokehouse 21 is welcoming its new neighbors Sterling Coffee Roasters (which will soon share NW 21st's M Bar space) by unveiling a new menu item: espresso-rubbed smoked pork cheeks. Smith notes that the plate was conceived as a limited-time-only dish (Sterling moves into its new digs next week), but they may stick around long-term due to popularity. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—Here's a last-minute Saturday dinner plan: The Heathman will host Kentucky's Four Roses Bourbon during a five-course bourbon pairing dinner tomorrow (June 9). A Four Roses representative will be on-hand to talk diners through each pairing, which sees courses like a duck confit braised with bourbon and rose petals, and Kurobuta pork with a cherry bourbon glaze (paired with a single barrel bourbon). Reservations are $65 and available by calling the restaurant. [EaterWire]

EVERYWHERE—Starbucks will start selling single-use landfill-filling K-Cups in its stores early next week. Perhaps because they are planning to launch Verismo, their own single-serving system, sometime before the holidays? [AP via Eater National]
