Highlights from SFoodie this week:

1. Artisanal pop tarts are having a moment. You can buy William Werner's savory pumpkin hand pie from the Tell Tale Preserve Co. farmers' market stand, or pick Gillian Shaw's pop tarts up for your Thanksgiving meal at the Black Jet Baking Co. pop-up shop next Wednesday.

2. What's the SFoodie post I've heard the most about from friends? Lou Bustamante's visit to Nihon, whose whisk(e)y collection is unparalleled in the city and whose bartender maintains a database of tasting notes to help visitors navigate the collection.

3. Thank effin god. The Supes are easing restrictions on street-food vendors.

And thanks to John Birdsall for covering the entire process so closely.

Now, is the police department going to refund the $10,000 fee that all the

existing microbusinesses have had to pay to start selling food on the


4. If you have 45 minutes and have a passion for fermented dough, feel free to read part I and part II of my Tartine Bread baking saga.

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.'"
