This weekend's Holiday Chocolate Show will host nearly 30 local independent confectioners, and should prove to be a good spot for scoring some thoughtful and beautiful holiday gifts, taking a snapshot of the range of ideas and presentations bubbling up in the Bay Area, or just sampling yourself silly on freebies.

In a list of high-quality vendors that our extensive research has found are pretty much all worth a nibble, there are a few stand outs: Emeryville's Charles Chocolates for triple chocolate almonds, Scotts Valley's Chocolate Visions for thick bars, Berkeley's the Xocolate Bar for edible (and sometimes erotic) art, Oakland's Coco Delice for peanut butter bonbons, and S.F.'s Neo Cocoa for classic truffles. Hit these up first before the pickin's get slim.

The cacao-fueled adventure takes place this Saturday, Nov. 14, from noon to 5 p.m. at Herbst Pavilion (99 Marina, in Fort Mason Center). Tickets are $21 ($11 children); get more info and purchase tickets at the official site.

  • 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.'"
