Buy Salsa, Support Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

Posted By on Tue, Nov 6, 2012 at 12:23 PM

  • Papalote Mexican Grill

Sounds like a win-win situation to us: On November 11 (Sunday), Papalote will donate 50% of the sales of its famous Roasted Tomato Salsa to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims. Owners Miguel and Victor Escobedo and Jodi Hernandez all feel a strong connection to the East Coast, and have decided to use their renowned salsa to help with the Red Cross relief efforts. Remember: this is the salsa that was once declared a "secret weapon" by Bobby Flay in Throwdown!, so this should be a fairly delicious way to show your support.

The original, SerranoTomatillo, and Habanero shelf-stable salsas will be available at Papalote's two locations on Sunday, for the regular retail price of $6.99. Half of the money will go toward the Red Cross. The deal is only valid at the two locations of Papalote Mexican Grill (24th at Valencia, Fulton at Masonic), and doesn't include Papalote homemade salsa jars or shelf-stable salsas sold at other locations.

"We wish we could ship them burritos," says Hernandez. "But we're hoping this will help, and that our friends and neighbors will do what they can as well."

  • 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.'"
