Want to Make Your Place Feel More Lived In? Try Butchery

Farr at work: This could be your dining room table.
You know, a house just isn't a home these days without a little pig butchery. Just so happens that if you score the winning bid in the San Francisco Street Food Festival's silent auction, you'll be able to give your flat exactly what it's been lacking -- a personal hog-hacking demo from 4505 Meats' Ryan Farr.

Festival organizers recently published their growing list of auction items. If the Farr butchery turns you off, consider the chance to be chef for a day at Chez Panisse (don't worry -- something tells us they won't throw you on the sauté station during the lunch rush) followed by dinner for two. You can score Japanese cooking classes from Peko Peko Catering, learn how to knock out Salvadoran tamales from Maria del Carmen Flores of Estrellita's Snacks, and get a cheese-and-wine pairing in your home from the Cheese Shop of Healdsburg.

The Street Food Fest unfolds on August 22nd, along a blocked-off stretch of Folsom between 25th and 26th streets. Check out the full list of auction items at its Web site.

  • 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.'"
