San Francisco International Chocolate Salon

Where: Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion, Buchanan at Marina

When: Sat., April 17, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Cost: $25 advance, $30 at the door

The rundown: At a recent fondue event, SFoodie spied a brazen toddler getting his business up in the chocolate fountain. Totally gross, but we kind of get where he was coming from. If your chocolate cravings run similarly haywire, this weekend's annual Chocolate Salon may be just the thing. It's a hedonistic day-long cocoa fest, with vendors from all over the world offering samples, special tastings, wine pairings, and more. Purveyors hail from all over the country, but local acts include Neo Cocoa and Socola, both masters of fine trufflery. Guest speakers trend TV talking head, but Lisa Lu, pastry chef at Jardinière and chocolate goddess Alice Medrich are both on the lineup. To get pumped pregame, check out Tamara Palmer's Salon slideshow from 2009.

  • 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.'"
