The drawbacks of DIY cattle ranching obviously start with space. A chicken coop is one thing, but legit pasture on a San Francisco lot is rare -- unless you're as rich as Robin Williams or something. We're just guessing, but if enjoying grass-fed steak is your thing and shoveling manure is not, you might want to look into forging a relationship with Stone House Ranch in Mill Valley.

According to yesterday's Craigslist posting, the ranch is selling 500-800 pound steers (they usually runclose to $1 per pound) and then charging board for six to nine months until slaughter. Next fall, customers can cash in on the investment. If you don't have a spit that big for impromptu roasting, or a freezer large enough to store the cuts, consider going in on one with some mates. Think of the cookouts you'll have -- this time next year.

  • 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.'"
