Festa Della Donna

Where: A16, 2355 Chestnut (at Scott), 771-2216

When: Tue., Mar. 8, 5:30-10 p.m.

Cost: A la carte pricing

The rundown: In honor of International Women's Day, a multinational she's-she of female wine and food talent is assembling at A16 for a fundraiser to boost the coffers of La Cocina, S.F.'s incubator for women-owned food businesses. Expect Boston chef Barbara Lynch, Andante Dairy's Soyoung Scanlan, Italian scribe Dacia Maraini, Bacchant Wines' Sara Floyd, and importer Martine Saunier. Also, winemakers Pam Starr, Laely Heron, Morgan Clendenen, and Cecilia Naldoni Piccin. They'll join A16's Shelley Lindgren and chef David Taylor in serving up special a la carte dishes (on top of A16's regular menu) and wine pairings, with all profits going to La Cocina. One thing: Non-males might want to hit the potty before leaving the house ― the line for the women's room is likely to be brutal. Just brutal.

Reservations via OpenTable, or call 771-2216; a third of the dining room will be left open for walk-ins

  • 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.'"
