Free Chocolate Pasties in the Richmond! Um, Slightly Used

One a recent night in the Richmond, you could have furnished a small apartment with the finds left out on the sidewalk. On one block, we passed five chairs (three wood, two plastic), a woven wicker hamper in good repair, a Formica-topped coffee table, and box upon box of books and tapes (we snagged a Wallace & Gromit three-tape set for some parents we know who still possess a combination VCR/DVD player).

But who would fish chocolate pasties out of the box laden with lotions and body gel? On closer inspection, the contents seemed to tell a short story -- a rather tawdry one. Getting out of a home-based business, perhaps, due to changes in what Craigslist will post? Or just someone who lost their taste for sweets?

  • 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.'"
