From the bacon marshmallows at Perbacco (230 California) to the maple bacon donuts at Dynamo (2760 24th St.), bacon continues to be a favorite ingredient to play with for experimental chefs of all stripes. And just when we think we couldn't handle another bite of the stuff, California Culinary Academy instructor and pro pastry chef Lori Baker hits us with meaty chunks of bacon peanut brittle. Caramelized to shatter just like the sugar does, it's a blurry blend that is supposed to be wrong, but tastes so right. This odd treat is $6 and available at Humphry Slocombe (2790A Harrison).

  • 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.'"
