Five highlights from the blog this week:

1. The Blue Bottle Dolores Park cart drama has ended with BB pulling out of the park and canceling its lease. John Birdsall's post-mortem post is a lovely elegy for a scene that could have been.

2. Catch up, foodista: Have you seen the adorable promo video for Chad Robertson's Tartine Bread book, which everyone is gaga over? Watch it ― and then go see the baker when he reads at Omnivore Books to ask him your advanced questions about that ominously bubbling sourdough starter in your kitchen.

3. Alex Hochman checked out Mission Chinese Food's new dumpling station and found one dumpling that calls sweetly to SFoodie: stuffed lamb, lamb sweetbreads, and peanuts. It'll be

interesting to see where former Farina pasta maker Danny Bowien goes from


4. Continuing SFoodie's mission to alienate every significant food producer and diner in San Francisco, in this week's "Best Practices" column, Laura Beck takes on the unspoken rules of Slow Food SF. "When you're feeling more secure in your mastery of Slow

Food," she writes, "find a

poor family ... and teach them to eat correctly. If you don't educate

these people about quinoa, who will? WHO?" P.S. Where do we apply for the

secret Jamie Oliver website?

5. Dude. Fries on a sandwich.

Dude. And Giordano's all-in-one is based on one from Pittsburgh, so you won't be

showing any kind of allegiance to the Phillies if you go eat one.

  • 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.'"
