Indian chai walla. - PROXY INDIAN/FLICKR

Art of Chai Class

Where: Mission Creek Kitchen, 550 Alabama (at Mariposa)

When: Sat., April 16, 2-4:30 p.m.

Cost: $45

The rundown: The Starbucks chai latte you slurp like a soda from the jumbo cupholder in your Wrangler? Not exactly in line with Indian street-food tradition, though its a start. To take you deeper into chai understanding, the Chai Cart's Paawan Kothari is teaching a class tracing the drink's history and culture in India, different methods for making, and how to choose its main components, plus an overview of Indian street snacks (chaat). You'll sip chai and nibble on chaat, and walk with a shopping list and samples of Kotahri's teas to experiment with.

  • 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.'"
