Amongst all the temptations of Ici (2948 College Avenue in Berkeley) is the delicious affogato di gelato ($5.75), an Italian sundae of vanilla bean ice cream crowned with freshly brewed warm espresso and chewy candied orange peel. The sundae pictured above is the to-go version, but if you savor it there it comes served in a coffee cup. Be careful if you're as caffeine-sensitive as this writer, however, because the espresso delivers the expected punch, especially if you adopt the same method of slurping the melted espresso-vanilla mixture with abandon. -- Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
