Like fickle frogs on the lookout for loftier lily pads, chefs often hop from restaurant to restaurant. Not Annie Somerville. She's been working the stoves at Greens for nearly every one of the restaurant's 30 years. On April 10, she will be honored at a party simultaneously benefiting a variety of Zen Center efforts (San Francisco Zen Center owns Greens), including the farm apprenticeship program. Hopefully, she'll get a gold-plated whisk for her decades of service. The Greens staff will prepare sweet and savory bites to pair with locally sourced organic and biodynamic wines and live jazz. Huey Johnson, founder and president of the Resource Renewal Institute, and cookbook scribe and founding Greens chef Deborah Madison will give the keynote address. Event details after the jump.

  • 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.'"
