It's too late to enter a recipe for SF Food Wars' August 23rd Mac Battle Royale w/ Cheese at the Stable Café (2128 Folsom at 17th St.), which was announced only yesterday. Before Food Wars closed the list, some 60 competitors -- three times as many as the Stable will hold -- had signed up. The 170 tickets ($10 each -- profits go to the San Francisco Food Bank) sold out instantly, too.

So why are we telling you about the event? Three reasons. First, SFoodie's own Tamara Palmer is one of the esteemed judges (hint: we hear she likes bacon). Second, we admire Food Wars' puns: The event starts, in wording on its Web site, "at 1 p.m. sharp (cheddar) and runs till (amook) 4 p.m."

And third, there's always next time -- follow SF Food Wars on Twitter and Facebook to learn about future wars. Jeannie Choe, who self-describes as SF Food Wars' gatekeeper, told us they're definitely planning more Battle Royales, and said she was delighted and overwhelmed by the instantaneous response. "I was afraid nobody would sign up," she said.

The next war will be announced at the mac 'n' cheese event. But we hear it'll be suh-weet!

  • 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.'"
