Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Stoner specs: Yeah, we all made fun of it -- the messenger-bag-turned-beer-cooler by Timbuk2, named for Dolores Park. Last Sunday, Mission Mission's Allan Hough actually spotted some guy using one, unleashing a string of reader comments about obnoxious hipsters befouling the, well, authentically hipsterish byways of the Mission. We know - confusing. Our favorite comment may be from Lapidgeon, who in true DP style has a suggestion for the designers at Timbuk2: when are they going to add something to keep the ganja treats warm?

Butchered: In a cut-by-cut photo guide on his 4505 Meats blog, Ryan Farr breaks down how to break down a baby lamb. The early pics are a tad disturbing, shall we say? The skinned carcass posed like an alert dog, albeit one with its head and the tips of its extremities cut off. Still, Farr makes it all come out okay in the end, thanks to chiles, herbs, and salt and pepper and some grill-y, roast-y browning reaction that makes us forget all about being freaked. Funny how meat can do that to us.

  • 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.'"
