​It's rare that you'll spot SFoodie chillin' with a diet drink in hand, especially one sweetened with stevia, which is arguably what one might imagine a can of Raid to taste like. But Half Moon Bay's Odwalla health beverage company has made us reconsider with its nine-month-old Mojito Mambo, made with a combo of rebiana (supposedly the best-tasting part of stevia, according to a company release) and evaporated cane juice, a hybrid Odwalla has copyrighted as Truvia.

If you're someone who simply cannot give more than 50 calories over to a drink, but still have that craving for something sweet and refreshing, this is a good choice. Full disclosure: We didn't even realize this was a "light beverage" when we purchased it (we were taken by the mocktail vibe), and still didn't until we detected a slight aftertaste about halfway through the bottle.

  • 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.'"
