Andrew Zimmern is shooting an episode of his eat-anything Travel Channel series Bizarre Foods in San Francisco, according to a blog post from forageSF's Iso Rabins, who's been asked to participate. A commenter to Rabins' blog stated that Shirley Fong-Torres of Wok Wiz tours has also been approached to guide Zimmern through Chinatown, but it appears that neither has made a commitment.

This city isn't likely to have the strangest bites that Zimmern has ever eaten. But he'd do well sampling local treats like 4505's Zilla Dog, foie gras ice cream sandwiches from Humphry Slocombe, the Ritz-Carlton's Lincecum, and balut pâté crostini from Intramuros.

  • 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.'"
