Things have been precarious at the Lower Haight burrito emporium for more than a year, but this time it's serious: Cuco's will close forever after tonight. Which means that you have until 9 p.m. to get over to Haight and Fillmore and eat one of the best burritos in the city.

The Campos family, who have been running the Mexican and Salvardoran restaurant since 1992, tell Inside Scoop that they may relocate somewhere cheaper like the Mission or Daly City, but it's all up in the air. They have been evicted from this location by landlord Robert Shelton, who terminated the family's month-to-month lease without explanation earlier this year, according to Hoodline.

Let's all have a moment of silence for this remarkable burrito. If you do get one tonight (and you should!), hopefully you'll be able to taste it through your tears.

  • 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.'"
