Open for just over three weeks, Loving Cup (2356 Polk St.) specializes in rice pudding and frozen yogurt. The latter is sweet and not the tart variety that seems to dominate the dozens of fro-yo shops in the area; it comes in blocks of vanilla or chocolate that are broken down and blended with the mix-in of your choice, toppings like frozen fruit, animal crackers, Junior Mints and Nutella. But the real star of the show here is the rice pudding, flavors of which change on a daily basis.

On our visit, we tasted the pistachio, pecan praline, egg nog and Madagascar vanilla bean varieties, ultimately choosing a large container of the pistachio to bring home. The pudding has its own creative topping choices that range from a shot of espresso to a black bottom, wherein a rich chocolate ganache coats the bottom of your bowl. The latter is amazing with the peanut butter rice pudding, according to Loving Cup's Christine Kennedy, who kindly helped us make our decisions.  -- 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.'"
