Traci Des Jardins is San Francisco's honorary chair of Share Our Strength, a nonprofit with the motto "no kid hungry," and she's pulled together an impressive selection of culinary talents for Thursday's Taste of the Nation benefit. More than 40 chefs and restaurants are participating; the teaser list that's been released includes Dominique Crenn of Luce, Jen Biesty of Scala's Bistro, Mark Sullivan of Spruce, Matthew Accarrino of SPQR, Hoss Zaré of Zaré at Fly Trap, and Elizabeth Falkner of Citizen Cake.

A VIP option not only allows a ticket holder to enter an hour earlier, which can be a key advantage at tasting events, they'll also preview flavors from forthcoming restaurants including Bar Agricole, Plum, and Benu and sample wines from RN74's Rajat Parr and cocktails from HMS Cocktails. The full 100 percent of proceeds go to the cause. 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.'"
