One thing we like about Bi-Rite is how the store treats its employees and producers like family. In September, when pastured-chicken purveyor Soul Food Farm fell prey to a fire that savaged its stock of poultry, Bi-Rite staged a raffle and raised over $8,000. Now, in the wake of the BP oil leak, the 18th Street institution is going to bat for Gulf Coast fishermen affected by the disaster, as part of Dine Out for the Gulf Coast, Jimmy Galle's nationwide food industry benefit for the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund. Bi-Rite's raffle starts today and will last just two weeks. Available for purchase at Bi-Rite, Bi-Rite Creamery, or by calling the market at 241-9760. Tickets cost $5 apiece; $20 gets you five, along with a cloth Bi-Rite bag. The drawing will happen at 18 Reasons on June 30 at 8 p.m., where Galle himself will share his perspective on the spill. Prize list after the jump.

• Private dinner for eight at 18 Reasons, cooked by Bi-Rite's Sam Mogannam

• Private dinner for eight, cooked by Alex Ong of Betelnut

• Ice cream for a year from Bi-Rite Creamery (as a $400 gift card)

• Gift basket of grocery items ($150 value)

• A six-pack of Mom's preserves ($50 value)

• A case of 18th Street wines ($150 value)

• Dinner from Sukhi's Gourmet Indian Foods every Friday for a month

• "Chicken = Tiny Dinosaur" print donated by local artist Imin Yeh

  • 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.'"
