San Rafael's Roman Bar (so named for its owner, Roman Starno) has a sweet, vegan treat with its chocolate-dipped fruit bars that were originally inspired by an experiment with chocolate and Fig Newtons in Starno's kitchen almost 20 years ago. A whole wheat pastry/cookie concoction liberally enrobed in dark chocolate and filled with blueberry or, in this case, honey-peach apricot, it does a good job with its flavors and, more importantly with vegan products, moist texture. It can be had for $1.50 at Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom).

  • 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.'"
