The Crab Strike is Over!

Posted By on Wed, Dec 12, 2012 at 12:40 PM

Good news, crab fans: The 11-day Dungeness crab boat skipper strike has ended, which means that sweet, fresh crab will start to make its way back into restaurants in the next few days. The skippers had been in a dispute since December 2 over the price of wholesale crab, which had been promised at $3 a pound but word went around that wholesalers might cut the price to $2.75 or less. But an agreement was reached and the 100 boats that went on strike are back out on the water today.

Meaning that there will be plenty of fresh crab for the holidays, when it's a tradition for many, as well as for crab feeds in January. It also means that Rice Paper Scissors is throwing a Dungeness-themed pop-up in Florida Street Cafe on December 15, reports Eater. The six-course dinner will feature dishes like salt and pepper crab -- find more info and buy tickets on Eventbrite. [SFGate, Eater]

  • 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.'"
