Some lucky Californian won't have to worry about scrambling together rent money ever again. In fact, they could probably say "screw it" and buy a house -- or two -- in the wine country. An unidentified convenient store shopper scored this weekend after purchasing a California Lottery ticket worth $2,623,314.

The lottery announced that the winning ticket was sold at the Cable Car Wine and Spirit Grocer, located at 841 Clement St. The winning ticket reportedly matched five out of six numbers in Saturday's Powerball draw.

The winning numbers were 8, 37, 2, 35, and 22. No word on who this mystery champ is, but they have 180 days from Saturday -- the night of the drawing -- to go pick up their pile of money.

FYI, Wednesday's jackpot is $116 million. So grab a few tickets when you're picking up your next bottle of vodka.

  • 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.'"
