Last time around it was a sick-ass slog through 20 versions of mac and cheese sportin' blue cheese, fatback -- even miso. But SF Food Wars' next throwdown centers around a food group altogether sweeter and kitten-fluffier: cupcakes. Mini ones, which might make the October 18 at Stable Cafe (2128 Folsom at 17th St.) seem practically adorable.

Don't count on it.

SF Food Wars Mini Cupcake Clash promises to be just as pointy-elbow brutal as the Mac Battle Royale w/ Cheese. Today, SFFW sent out a call for entries -- amateurs and professionals alike are welcome to battle (drop an e-mail to - go to first to see what info to include). A potentially nauseating twist: You can enter savories, if you think they'll be irresistible to the judges, who include SFoodie contributor Tamara Palmer and Gobba Gobba Hey's Steven Gdula.

Event tickets ($10) go on sale next Monday, September 28 at noon. Clear your calendar, since you'll have to e-mail pretty much precisely at noon -- only 170 tix are available. They're guaranteed to go like mini cupcakes.

  • 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.'"
