Free KFC, Courtesy of Oprah!

Posted By on Wed, May 6, 2009 at 6:50 AM

Oh hell, free food is free food.

We're not big fans of the Colonel. In truth, neither was the Colonel, once his patented recipe and method were bastardized by the fast-food conglomerate that jettisoned his name in favor of initials. (If you want to taste what Original Recipe was like back in the day, Casa Orinda [20 Bryant Way, Orinda, 925-254-2981] bought the equipment and the recipe and still kicks it old school.)

If we're paying, we shell out for Popeyes. But when Oprah offers you a free coupon to try KFC's new grilled chicken, complete with sides and a biscuit -- downloadable today until 4 p.m. at -- we say go for it.

  • 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.'"
