Brisbane: Curry Up Now, the Indian food truck already popular on the peninsula, is inching its way toward us and will be open every Wednesday, starting to tomorrow, in the Wal-Mart parking lot near the airport. [SFoodie]

SOMA: Annie’s Social Club, which shuttered after New Year’s, is about to get a models-and-bottles makeover as something called Qi Ultralounge. The location, at 917 Folsom between 5th and 6th, is hardly a swanky block, but we’re guessing this will be more of a bridge-and-tunnel venue (great freeway access!) than it will be a hangout for the Saudi millionaires who stay at the nearby Intercontinental.

Also in SOMA: The Gallery Lounge at 510 Brannan has been sold and is getting made over as Bar Basic in the very near future. [Eater]

Downtown: Popular bar John Collins is moving up the street and into another alley. To make way for the upcoming Transbay project, they’ve closed their Natoma location and are moving a tenth of a mile away to 138 Minna, opening this Thursday. [Eater]

Marina: Café Maritime closed over the weekend after six years in their Lombard Street location. But owner Mark Mitcheltree says he’s looking to reopen in a different ‘hood. [Eater]
