Another S.F. restaurant is stepping up for Japanese disaster relief. From a message on Ebisu's website:

All of us are saddened and concerned to have learned about the destruction of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake which has devastated areas of Japan. Many of us and our staff have family and friends who are affected by this tragedy. For the next week, portions of profits from all our locations will be donated back to Japan Earthquake Relief and the Red Cross. For our loyal family of friends and customers who have loved ones throughout Japan, our thoughts and love are with you. Steve, Koko, Eric and Charlie Fujii and the entire Ebisu/Hotei staff
The relief offer ends Mar. 18.

Meanwhile, 2G Japanese Brasserie's Royce Tsuji tells SFoodie that the restaurant's Friday night donation offer netted $200 for the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California's Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.

Ebisu has three locations:1283 Ninth Ave. (at Irving), 566-1770; 336 Kearny (at Pine), 398-2388; plus one at SFO's International Terminal. The donation pledge also applies to Ebisu's Hotei spinoff: 1290 Ninth Ave. (at Irving), 753-6045

  • 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.'"
