This afternoon kicks off a weekend of harvest-related activities at the Ferry Building. Free events include an olive oil tasting, apple pressing and cider making, a Barnyard by the Bay petting zoo, and live music. Till 8 p.m. today, an organic spirits (boo!), wine, and beer tasting is going down. Tickets are $15 for five tastes, or $25 for 10, and the proceeds benefit California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), which is historically one of the oldest certifying agencies. Snazzy wine glass is yours to keep.

At tomorrow's Ferry Plaza farmers' market, there'll be harvest produce in full effect, an heirloom apple tasting and cider pressing, butter making, and wool spinning. These are free family friendly activities that run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors throughout the market will also offer seasonal tastes. A combo of gypsy jazz and barnyard animals wrap the weekend's festivities up on Sunday. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., celebrate the harvest with face painting, and by (gently) stroking a cute little barnyard animal in the petting zoo. Gently, we said!

  • 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.'"
