Meatpaper Loves Rabbit in Its Own Special Way

Meatpaper's 10th issue is on its way, and the magazine is holding a series of events to promote it while raising awareness about the deliciousness of rabbit, which the editors are calling "the new chicken." (Backyard chickens are now the old chicken. Which probably makes duck, which used to be the old chicken, so far out of fashion that it'll cycle back around in a year or so. Or perhaps first squab will become the new rabbit. SFoodie is taking bets.)

So, in true Meatpaper fashion, "Rabbit Week West" begins on Feb. 20 with a butchery course in Oakland with Samin Nosrat, former sous chef of Eccolo and disciple of Dario Cecchini. It is sold out, so don't even try.

Two days later, on Monday, Feb. 22, Chris Kronner of Bar Tartine is pairing up with a Brooklyn chef named Sean Rembold (Diner)

to cook a $100, four-course dinner at Bar Tartine that includes rabbit

charcuterie and rabbit hind leg cooked al mattone (under a brick).

There seem to be tickets for both the 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. seatings.

In between, on Sunday, Feb. 21, is the big public party, the kind that Meatpaper is famous for: Hosted at Pizzaiolo, it features everyone mentioned above plus Flour +

Water's Thomas McNaughton; Beretta's bartender, Christa Manalo; and

need we even mention Ryan Farr? There were rumblings over the

inaccessibility of food at past events, so the organizers have bumped up the tickets to $50, which should presumably buy them more ... meat.

Event details:
Meatpaper Issue 10 Party (Rabbit Week West)
Time: Sun., Feb. 21, 7-10 p.m.
Location: Pizzaiolo, 5008 Telegraph (at 51st St.), Oakland, (510) 652-4888.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
