The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.

Inside Scoop gets word that James Syhabout's Hawker Fare (2300 Webster at 23rd St. in Oakland) is set to open for lunch on May 17 and dinner on May 26. A sharp departure from Syhabout's meticulously refined Commis, Hawker Fare will feature a hip-hop vibe (music, kung fu posters) and an Asian street-food menu.

And the Richmond District Blog notes that the Fresh and Easy market set to open on 32nd Ave. at Clement has hit a snag. All Fresh and Easy stores are self-checkout only, and with Assemblywoman Fiona Ma's proposed ban on selling alcohol at DIY registers, that could mean a boozy showdown.

  • 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.'"
