  • Turducken from 4505 Meats: Why settle for one bird when you can have three?
Mission dwellers have a grazing option today. Starting at 5 p.m., Bi-Rite Market (3639 18th St. at Guerrero) is setting up a Thanksgiving tasting station set up in front of the store -- samples of Bill Niman's BN Ranch heritage turkey, cranberry relish made with honey from the Bi-Rite Sonoma farm, pumpkin and pecan pies, and related Thanksgiving dishes. Bi-Rite is the only San Francisco retailer to carry BN's heritage turkeys, which are heirloom breeds pasture-raised in Sonoma (Bi-Rite also carries birds from Good Shepard and Diestel). The sample party runs till 7 p.m. today, a repeat tasting happens Saturday, Nov. 14, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

If you're looking for something less traditional for Thanksgiving than a heritage gobbler, consider turducken from 4505 Meats. Rock star butcher Ryan Farr is taking orders for the turkey-duck-chicken mashups (stuffed with cornbread-chicken sausage stuffing) through Nov. 20. The birds are organic and free range, and the turducken comes in two sizes: 15 pounds ($200) and 20 pounds ($250). You'll have to pick it up in Potrero Hill, or opt for overnight shipping (which is extra). Place an order by e-mailing Cash or check only.

  • 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.'"
