Want a slice of Yigit Pura, winner of Top Chef: Just Desserts and pastry chef for S.F.'s Taste Catering? After we reported that Yigit's single, with dreams of opening a dessert shop with his Bravo winnings, we found out we can actually get a taste of this cutie pie without waiting for his dessert house to launch. For Thanksgiving, Pura is selling his pumpkin custard tart, with all proceeds benefiting people in need. Order one of Yigit's $35 tarts online through Gilt City, and 70 percent of proceeds go to SkillsUSA, a national charity that supports career and technical education. You can pick up the tart Wed., Nov. 24, at HELLO The Candystore Collective (2226 Bush, at Fillmore), between 11:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. You get to give back, support a great cause, and get a Yigit pumpkin pie on your Thanksgiving table. As Yigit would say, nothing wrong with that.

You have until tomorrow at noon to order ― unless they run out sooner.

  • 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.'"
