DOWNTOWN CROSSING — Should you find yourself craving SpaghettiOs late Friday night, outgoing jm Curley chef Sam Monsour and Mark O'Leary (whom you might know from O Ya and Guchi's Midnight Ramen) are hosting a SpaghettiOs pop-up at jm Curley, starting at midnight. All proceeds will benefit US veterans, and there will only be 72 dishes available. The options: SpaghettiOs tom kar gai with lobster, lemon grass, coconut, Thai basil, and crispy shallot (O'Leary); SpaghettiOs ramen with ham hock dashi, roasted pork shoulder, Texas Pete'd egg, and collards (Monsour).

UPDATE: To clarify, the SpaghettiOs dishes are simply an addition to the regular menu, and it will be business as usual on Friday, with no spaces held for SpaghettiOs-seekers. jm Curley is often at capacity by that time of the night on Fridays, so don't be disappointed if you head over specifically for SpaghettiOs at midnight and can't get in.
