Forbes.com recently released a list of top-earning celebrity chefs, and blogland has been abuzz. It's worth noting the staggering disparity of salaries between head cheese Rachael Ray, who comes in first with $18 million a year (yum-o!) and Anthony Bourdain, who rounds out the list at number 10 with $1.5 million a year. And that two of those honored have ties to the San Francisco restaurant scene: Wolfgang Puck (number two; $16 million; Postrio) and Tom Colicchio (number eight; $2 million; 'Wichcraft).

  • 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.'"
