Local hero: Last week, Bill Fujimoto stepped down as manager of Monterey Market, the watershed Berkeley produce biz that supplied deliciousness to Chez Panisse, Quince, and Zuni Café, among others. His departure came after a family disagreement about the direction of the nearly 50-year-old institution. Ex-Chron staffer Carol Ness penned a passionate farewell, viewable at the Ethicurean. A taste: For decades, Bill has cheerfully supported local farmers, even those with just a few crates of ripe stone fruit in the back of a station wagon, and helped dozens more to grow their business. People, people: a moment of silence please?

The other white meat: You didn't really think climate change would mean we'll still all get to go on eating half-pound Wagyu burgers, did you? How about cultivating a taste for jellyfish? Warmer ocean waters mean the things are growing faster than beakless chickens at a Tyson industrial facility. Grist points out the indigestible truth: A jellyfish burger and fries may not seem so appetizing to your average American seafood lover, but the notion isn't too far off. Um, can we get bacon on that?

  • 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.'"
