For fans of Ike's Place, the clock is running out on a chance to save green on sandwich purchases while boosting a good cause. Owner Ike Shehadeh has partnered with MiKind, a new Groupon-style service with a charity twist. Shehadeh wants to raise funds for Mama Hope's St. Timothy's School in Tanzania, seeking to raise $2,000 to help build an orphanage with living quarters for 100 children, a vocational training center, and a community garden.

The way it works: Until midnight tomorrow, Feb. 19, you pay $12 for a coupon worth $20 at Ike's Place ― $4 will be donated to Mama Hope. Maybe the best part is that the coupons never expire; Ike's says it'll accept them anytime. The fine print: coupons are for use only at Ike's San Francisco location. No cash back or credit (meaning you have to buy $20's worth ― or more ― of food). Sounds like a good deal to us.

  • 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.'"
