It's finally here: Heirloom Tomato Week starts today! From August 14 -- 24 a whopping 52 area restaurants will tailor special tasting menus and dishes to showcase the taste-bud defying wonder that is the local heirloom tomato. Among the participating restaurants: North Beach's excellent and pricey Coi (373 Broadway), fancy Mexican spot Tres Agaves (130 Townsend), refined French purveyors Jardiniere (300 Grove), and Asian Fuson specialists Betelnut (2030 Union), among many others. It's the first of four planned "weeks" in San Francisco being organized by San Francisco Chefs. Food. Wine. Next up is Dungeness Crab Week (January, 2009), then Strawberry Week (April, 2009) -- all of which culminate in San Francisco Chefs. Food. Wine. The Weekend Affair, to be held in Union Square around this time next year. For the full rundown and to make reservations, check out opentable.com.

  • 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.'"
