Rabbit, bison and acorns are some of the unusual highlights of Mission Street Food's Native Foods Night tomorrow night (February 26), featuring dishes from guest chef John Farais (a board member of the Marin Museum of the American Indian and member of the California Native Garden Foundation, to which he'll donate his proceeds). MSF now donates its profits each week to a different charitable organization, often those who directly feed local people in need, and for this dinner, they'll give to the Free Meals Program at Glide Memorial Church. The cash-only dinner takes place between 6 p.m. to midnight at Lung Shan (2234 Mission).

MSF is now also operating most Saturday nights at the same time and place. Chef Anthony Myint says he's still working out his menu for this Saturday night, though one item he knows will be there for sure is his classic flatbread sandwich of king trumpet mushroom with triple fried potato, garlic confit and charred scallion sour cream ($6). He is also excited to confirm Sara Miles, author and founder of the non-profit Food Pantry, as his guest chef on March 5. Profits that night will be donated to FP, which feeds 700 families per week.

  • 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.'"
