Sure, it sounds like the butt of some bubba-cuisine joke, or a foodie's April Fool's. And yes, 4505's deep-fried mac is a panko-crusted calorie bomb, and it is shaped with the rectilinear precision of an industrial food product. But in the hands of Ryan Farr, it's lighter and more delicate than you'd think. The outside: satisfying as the buttered toast crumbs left on your breakfast plate. The interior: creamy without skewing high-butterfat sticky, with a cheesiness that flavors without clotting. No joke.

4505 Meats Ferry Plaza Thursday Market, North Arcade, 10 a.m.-2p.m.

  • 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.'"
