Welcome, Porkster: 4505 Meats Does Bacon Night TONIGHT at Welcome Stranger

Posted By on Wed, Nov 13, 2013 at 8:25 AM


You like whole-hog butchery, right? And you like fancy duds, non? You probably thought they'd never share a billing, so to speak, but tonight at fancy Hayes Valley boutique Welcome Stranger, 4505 Meats will be doing just that. It's Bacon Night! (But it could probably be named after any tasty component of an oinker, since you can walk out the door with pig-chops or pork shoulder along with a couple Rag & Bone button-downs or Malin + Goetz skincare products).

To accompany this demo, local folk four-piece Twig & the Berries will be playing. These four ladies make the perfect soundtrack for a few drinks while learning about where exactly your food comes from and how it's made. And of course, 4505 being 4505, you can pick up a bag of chicharrones, and some spice rub.

On a related note, because bacon has apparently escaped the orbit of mere trendiness to become a permanent thing, shouldn't there be a term for its staunchest aficionados? We nominate reclaiming "porkster" from those evil fat-shamers. Feel free to debate the merits at Welcome Stranger this evening!

Bacon Night, 5:30-8:30 p.m., at Welcome Stranger, 460 Gough St., (415) 864-2079.

  • 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.'"
