Monday mornings are tough, but this series isn't. Social Sightings is your quick look at interesting food tidbits that we've spotted recently. It goes down as easy as your first cup of coffee, and should whet your appetite for the week ahead.

Death & Co., the cocktail bar inside RiNo's Ramble Hotel, has transformed its mezzanine space, the Suite 6A Bar, into The House on Suntory. The pop-up, whose theme focuses on the Japanese Sakura Festival, will run through April 30; the look is bright and elegant, with cherry blossoms throughout. The bar has its own special food and cocktail menu, too, with such options as fried chicken bao, sake, Japanese highballs and drinks like the Toki whiskey-based Seven Rays with brandy, apricot, shiitake and yuzu bitters. The House on Suntory is open Thursday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to close.

The Brick Bar
Over 1 million LEGO blocks will be used to create the Brick Bar, which is popping up at the Watering Bowl (5411 Leetsdale Drive) on April 1 and 2. The place will be packed with sculptures (and a ping-pong table) made entirely of building blocks, and you can make your own creations while sipping cocktails. The bar is all-ages during the day but 21 and up only after 6 p.m. Tickets are $22 and get you a ninety-minute session.
