  • Charles' Emeryville factory and retail shop is set to close Feb. 15.
Charles Chocolates owner Chuck Siegel told SFoodie that, provided the gods continue to smile upon him, he'll open his new retail space in San Francisco Centre (845 Market at Fourth St.) this Saturday, Feb. 6. The news will be bittersweet for East Bay fans, as this spells the imminent closure of the 6,700-square-foot candy kitchen and retail store in Emeryville (6529 Hollis at 66th St.), presently set for Feb. 15.

Those who haven't seen this truly special space, where watching the

candy-making process is both encouraged and explained, might want to

rush over and check it out. But Siegel is building what he reckons will

be an even better kitchen very close to the new store, and hopes to

have it open to the public before the end of the year.

  • 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.'"
