Doggy Bag: Battle of the Blogs

Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Take a victory lap around your laptop: Congratulations to Carolyn Jung, who came in second for best food blog in a competition by the Association of Food Journalists. Jung's blog Food Gal clocked in behind Between Meals by Chron senior critic and exec food editor Michael Bauer. That's right, Between Meals was named best blog at the AFJ's annual conference in New Orleans. We'll say it again: Best. Food. Blog. In. The. Nation. Think about it, people.

A former food staffer at the San Jose Mercury News (you know, back in the day when dailies had food staffs that numbered more than one), Jung is actually nice -- far nicer than we are. The networking organization draws much of its membership from daily newspaper food and wine writers, with smaller representation from alt weekly staffers and freelancers. Congratulations also to Jonathan Kauffman, staff writer at our sister pub Seattle Weekly, for taking first place in the category of restaurant criticism.

  • 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.'"
