Michael Mischer has unveiled an unusual new artisan chocolate piece for summer: barbecue, made with sauce from fellow Oaklanders Everett and Jones.

"I love barbecue," explained Mischer, "and one day I was at the grocery store, looking at sauce, and I got this idea."

While this might sound like a shocking pairing, it definitely doesn't jolt the palate. Barbecue sauce forms the smoky, slightly spicy base of a soft caramel filling encased in dark Felchlin chocolate from Switzerland. The combination is downright sensible.

Michael Mischer Chocolates 3352 Grand (at Elwood), Oakland, (510) 986-1822.

  • 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.'"
