Saturday 4/11: Beer Night for SF Food Bank

Hugh Schick has earned a reputation as one of the Bay Area's top private chefs with a clientele including Fritz Maytag and Christopher Hitchens. Camille Jackson has enjoyed working at The Meetinghouse, Biscuits and Blues, Bungalow 44, and the Boonfly Cafe at Carneros Inn. They are presenting a menu which could be described as Gastrotapas, featuring vivid, surprising flavors conducive to both wine and beer pairings. Hugh and Camille will also be offering an expanded beverage list including Chimay White, Leffe, Franziskaner Hefeweizen, Etienne Dupont Organic Cidre Bouche Brut and several wines--with all beverage profits going to charity (special thanks to Matagrano Inc, Spaten West and DBI Beverage Inc. for their generosity and to B United for their help).

The charity for this week is the SF Food Bank. The economic crisis and increasing joblessness have forced food distribution centers and food banks to decrease the number of days of food distribution and/or dip into reserves (News Hour). The SF Food Bank handles 300 tons of food each week, distributing to 191 local food pantries and soup kitchens.
