San Francisco Restaurant Needs Your Name -- Prize: Free Dinner in Noe Valley, God-like Naming Powers

Something tells me San Francisco restauranteur Brett Emerson made a good move by not naming his new Noe Valley bistro Olallie. It's hard to pronounce, even harder to spell, and who outside of your hardcore berry connoisseurs will know what the hell it means? But now Emerson is asking for your help to pick a better name, and there are prizes involved, namely free dinner at his new restaurant-to-be.

Check out a description of the restaurant's concept to get those verbal juices flowing, and keep in mind: "seasonable, sustainable California fare with Spanish flair." Among some of the pitches so far are Cafe Tango, Clara, Neblina and Bardine. Think you can do better? Of course you do.

  • 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.'"
