Hodo Soy Beanery opened a kiosk in San Francisco's Ferry Building last week, bringing a number of items it will exclusively carry there. One such category: Hodo's excellent soy milks (original, chocolate, and Thai tea) and smoothies (strawberry banana and kale avocado). The difference between them is that the smoothies are enriched with Hodo's silken tofu for a thicker product.

We sampled all but the kale avocado, since we're trying to work up to the idea of a savory smoothie and haven't quite gotten there yet. The winner in our book? Hodo's Thai tea soymilk, which has none of the cloying sweetness of a typical Thai iced tea and allows the flavor of the tea to really shine through. Though these all have a short shelf life, we hope to see them stocked at other spots around town soon.

  • 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.'"
