Cookie Jar Throwdown

Where: Omnivore Books on Food, 3885a Cesar Chavez (at Church), 282-4712

When: Sat., Jan. 29, 3-4 p.m.

Cost: Free for cookie entrants/ $5 for just-eaters

The rundown: Past food contests at Omnivore have ranged from the arty to the esoteric, but for its first competition of 2011, owner Celia Sack is sticking with the basics. It's a cookie contest, and SFoodie couldn't be more excited. Each entrant bakes several dozen of their chosen variety, for official judging and unofficial nibbling, and the winner takes home half the cash from the door. Though there may be a range of razzle-dazzle entries (e.g., brandied loganberry with a balsamic-basil drizzle), we're more interested in well-crafted versions of cookie classics. Oatmeal paired with raisins? Delightful!

Please note: There's no need for advanced registration at this event; just show up 10 minutes in advance.

  • 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.'"
