Much to the horror (and, sadly, delight) of the San Francisco food scene and beyond, Gaspar ‘Tio’ Puch-tzek, a line cook at Hogs and Rocks, was shot and killed outside the Mission restaurant last month. This Saturday, September 17, the noted restaurant will hold a memorial/fundraiser for the slain chef. The day will include food, a silent auction, and find memories.

If you are unable to attend yet still want support, Hogs and Rocks will accept donations at the restaurant during normal dining room hours. "You may also send donations through paypal. Please reference the fundraiser in the message box and send to the following email: drink[at]hogandrocks[dot]com."

If you care to donate a choice item for the silent auction, feel free to email marcelle[at]hogandrocks[dot]com for more details.
