  • Why with her salary plus the discount, she'll be able to afford a delicious small green salad and an iced tea.
Everyone's always talking about doing stuff for the kids, but Lark Creek Restaurant Group ― owner of Bay Area establishments One Market, Lark Creek Steak, The Tavern at Lark Creek, and Yankee Pier ― is doing a little something for the poor, hard-working, hungry folks charged with teaching those untidy wretches how the world works.

During the entire month of May, the group's stable of eateries will grant teachers and school employees presenting identification $10 discounts on meals ― though not, sadly, alcohol. There is no limit to the number of slightly discounted meals a teacher may enjoy, nor is there a minimum purchase required ― which means you could waltz in, flash your badge, and tuck into a light meal of water, creamed spinach, and a side of red wine butter for a measly two or three bucks after taxes and tip.

Why teachers, and why this particular bunch of restaurants? Because it's Teacher Appreciation Month, and Lark Creek don Michael Dellar is father to two public school teachers. "Being a teacher in California is particularly tough, given budget cutbacks, layoffs, and the general state of the economy," sayeth Dellar via the PR machine. "We want to show the teachers in our communities across the Bay Area how much we appreciate their hard work by giving back and continuing to offer this promotion each May."

Indeed. We shall toast him with béarnaise.

  • 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.'"
