Baller, indeed. Shot-caller, even.

San Francisco should be pretty familiar with La Cocina by now. The organization helps (primarily) low-income female immigrant entrepreneurs jumpstart their food businesses. Guisel Osorio is a recent success story, opening up her Chilean café Sabores del Sur in Walnut Creek last month. Azalina Eusope is another, with her brick-and-mortar Malaysian restaurant scheduled to debut later this fall in the Twitter building.

Being a non-profit, La Cocina sustains itself with a variety of methods including catering services, gift boxes, and a little 'ole street food festival held every year. But there's another exciting way they're simultaneously fundraising and connecting with the community: their online auction.

There are some pretty sweet items you can bid on, including dinner for two at Chez Panisse, a signed Anthony Bourdain book set, and a "Baller Version" of dinner and a show that includes a $100 gift certificate to NOPA and two VIP tickets to a show at The Independent.

The auction is live now and ends Friday, May 16th; all proceeds go to La Cocina's program. Click here to bid FTW.

  • 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.'"
