Costco Moment: Blue Hill Bay Whitefish Salad

Until this week, I had never eaten my fill of whitefish salad. At a deli or bagel shop you get a little dish or tub with, what? maybe half or three-quarters of a cup of the stuff? Even if I don't have to split that with anybody, by the time it's gone, I'm just getting warmed up.

Costco (450 10th St) to the rescue: the other day, I spotted this two-pound tub of Blue Hill Bay whitefish salad ($7.99). The Parve stamp and Brooklyn address seemed promising, as did the ingredient list: just smoked whitefish and mayo, plus dashes of potassium sorbate and nisin (benign preservatives).

And it was good: I put away about a pound. Once was probably enough for that kind of pigout; normally I'd expect a tub to last a few weeks, or to feed a crowd at a brunch or potluck. Now if only we had some real bagels around here.

  • 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.'"
