Bitch-slap and prepare to be bitch-slapped. That's the message from Chronicle readers after food critic Michael Bauer laid the hurt on Nob Hill restaurant Fleur de Lys. But it's not what you think. They aren't accusing Bauer of being too harsh on the place, in fact, they want even more of a spanking. They want blood.

On his blog, Bauer responds to comments from readers miffed that even after repeatedly bellyaching about the shitty service at Fleur de Lys, he still gave the place an overall rating of three and a half stars out of four. One reader even accuses the venerable foodie of deliberately kowtowing to owners. In Bauer's defense, his review does consistently maintain the excellence of Fleur de Lys' food, just not the service.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
