Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Gas hog: We love the smell of subversion that hovers around a rickety street cart, but we're completely gobsmacked poring over pics of Maximus Minimus. Foodzie introduced us via tweet to the food truck shaped like a pig -- it started hawking pulled-pork sandwiches in Seattle earlier this month. The name references some yin-yang notion of spicy and sweet that sounds, frankly, like a late-night concept better carted away with the empties in the morning. But hey, no doubt we're merely jealous a fleet of pig wagons aren't leaking oil on the streets of S.F.

Trippy: At Bay Area Bites, Andrew Simmons shows why he just might be our favorite blogger of things edible. Consider yesterday's gnarled tour de force about local food site Weird Vegetables: Stuffed into the blog's strange sieve of language and thought, vegetables are not merely waxed, sticker-tagged produce; they are characters. Identities, needs, wants, and feelings squirm within their husks and peels as well as flavors and nutrients. Total Hieronymous Bosch freak-out.

  • 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.'"
