SoCal punk icons hit the Fillmore: Everybody should see Social Distortion in concert. Mike Ness’ SoCal outfit is one of the truly legendary punk-rock bands, responsible for such classic roots-flavored blasts of adrenaline as “Ball and Chain,” “Story of My Life,” “Mommy’s Little Monster” and, of course, the great cover of the Johnny Cash staple “Ring of Fire.” The band has endured many lineup changes and Ness’s personal demons, but they should be ready to light a fuse on stage when they hit the Bay Area for two shows starting tonight. Jade Jackson opens. Details: 8 p.m. March 16, 9 p.m. March 17; Fillmore, San Francisco; $39.50; www.livenation.com.— Jim Harrington, Staff.

“For a while, when you see a Subway ad, you’re going to think about that child pornography charge,” said Allen Adamson of the brand consulting firm Landor Associates. Companies like having famous representatives because it’s is a way to make people feel like that they could somehow be more like those individuals — which in the case of Fogle meant losing weight and being able to keep it off. But such relationships also can backfire when celebrities run into trouble. The charges against Fogle also are tough because he wasn’t just a one-time celebrity endorser; he is famous solely for dropping more than 200 pounds with his “Subway diet.”.

After seven months in business, Wildwood Market closed its doors in mid-March. Owner Frank Dutro said that the neighborhood grocery store at 14413 Big Basin Way was unsustainable as it wasn’t attracting enough customers on a regular basis to keep the store in business. He and his wife, Lety, who was helping him run the store, were actually losing money, he said. People from within and outside the Saratoga community came together on March 19 to pay their respects to Lillian Benson. She died on March 17 at age 90, just a month shy of her 91st birthday. Dubbed by daughter Marsha Benson as a lifelong businesswoman, Lillian Benson was a regular presence at Marsha’s antiques store on Big Basin Way for three decades.
