Grapefruit Judged To Be Untastiest, Most Difficult Fruit

Aww. Poor grapefruit. According to xkcd ("A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math and language"), the grapefruit is the single most difficult, untasty fruit around (see above diagram, charmingly entitled "Fuck Grapefruit"). Amazingly, it's been deemed only slightly less difficult to eat than pomegranate, which is really saying something because eating pomegranate is a truly Sisyphean torture.

I would propose that anyone who says the grapefruit doesn't taste good should head over to Range in the Mission, find a nice seat at the bar and order the cocktail known as the "Vin de Pamplemousse," which I can say with confidence is the best fruity cocktail I've ever had -- and the principal mixer is grapefruit. It also has Square One Vodka, Viognier, vanilla bean and lemon. Check it out, grapefruit haters. (via Serious Eats)

  • 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.'"
