Another local food business raising money for Japan disaster relief: Peko-Peko Japanese Catering, at Wednesday's Pop-Up General Store in Oakland. From Peko-Peko's Sylan Mishima Brackett:

Although we were planning only to sell Japanese beef curry, the Peko Peko cooks and I have decided cook a few other things to raise money for earthquake relief. The income from our sales will be donated to a relief fund set up by the Fukushima Prefectural government.
Besides the beef curry ($12.50), Brackett's selling kombu tsukudani (pickled seaweed, $5), pork okazu (with miso from quake-stricken Sendai, $5), and ume and grapefruit zeri (jelly, $5). It's too late to preorder, but General Store organizers say there should be enough food for walk-ins to score.

When: Wed., Mar 16, 5-7 p.m.

Where: Grace Street Catering, 4629 Martin Luther King Jr. (at 47th St.), Oakland

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.
