Where: San Francisco Art Institute's Studio 18, 800 Chestnut (at Jones)

The rundown: Oakland's Bittersweet Cafe is organizing the coolest college career day maybe ever. Penelope Finnie, who runs the cacao-centric spot, will be joined by cookbook author Alice Medrich, Poco Dolce's Kathy Wiley, Guittard's senior scientist Thalia Hohenthal, and TCHO chocolate maker Zohara Mapes in discussing the many career possibilities in the growing chocolate industry. This information should prove especially useful in the Bay Area, which has truly evolved into ground zero of American independent chocolate thought.

  • 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.'"
