​If you were destitute and lived a life of servitude before winning the lottery, you probably wouldn't spend your earnings on a huge meal for your employers. But so it goes in the 1987 film Babette's Feast, in which a lonely cook beats the ultimate gaming odds and uses her proceeds to make the ultimate eating experience. Charles Chocolates will screen the film as part of its free summer movie series this Friday, August 14, in the factory parking lot (6529 Hollis at 65th in Emeryville). Hot chocolate, s'mores, and caramel corn with candied cacao nibs will be on sale starting at 6:30 p.m., with the film beginning at 9 p.m. Bring something to sit on and something to keep you warm.

  • 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.'"
