The gallery's trying to do the right thing.
​Hungry to support another street-food event for a good cause? The Mission's Fabric8 Galleries (3318 22nd St. at Valencia) is promising to set aside a portion of the proceeds from tonight's Street Food Friday for hurricane relief in the Philippines -- or possibly earthquake relief in Indonesia. "It's hard to know," Fabric8 co-owner Olivia Ongpin told SFoodie. "We are tryig to determine the best way we can help." Part of Ongpin's disaster-relief dilemma? She's Filipina, while her co-proprietor is part Indonesian. One thing is certain: Tonight's cart lineup is the trio of Crème Brûlée Cart, PizzaHacker, and Gumbo Cart, 6-8 p.m.
