While SFoodie is still digesting the tremendous loss of Michael Jackson, we are heartened by the tributes that have been popping up on menus around town.

On Friday morning, Little Skillet (330 Ritch at Townsend) rolled out the "Billy Jean" [sic]: Grits with bacon, pecans, and brown sugar. By the afternoon, customers at Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.) were getting all spiritual with a "Jesus Juice" sorbet made with Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone and Coke Classic (what, no Pepsi?). And a weekend special at Kate's Kitchen (471 Haight at Fillmore) was called the "R.I.P. Michael Jackson Omelet," filled with bacon, tomato, red onion, avocado, roasted Anaheim chili, and "Jacko" cheese.

Seen any local MJ menu items you'd like to add? Please leave 'em in the comments section.

  • 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.'"
