Meatpaper Breaks It Down

SF's flesh-inspired quarterly journal Meatpaper will celebrate the release of its sixth issue with a "Meat & Greet" party chock full of meat offerings and demonstrations in a collaboration between the publication and several chefs. OPENrestaurant's Sam White and Chris Kronner will educate the wasteful with a tasting of beef dishes composed of nearly everything from nose to tail. Perbacco's Staffan Terje is apparently bringing bacon marshmallows and other "sweets," while Leif Hedendal ensures there are some veggies around and Acme Chophouse's Thom Fox gets the rotisseries spinning.

Most interestingly, the party will remind readers precisely where meat actually comes from visually as Chef Ryan Farr (of Ivy Elegance caterers and the non-profit CHEFS program) shows how to break down a whole pig. I'll be honest: I've never seen this done before, and the idea of it scares me more than a bit. But I'll be in the house so that we can perhaps learn something from the experience together. Sunday, January 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Acme Chophouse (24 Willie Mays Plaza). Admission is $25. -- Tamara Palmer

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
