Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival

Where: Japantown's Peace Plaza

When: Sat., June 11, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Tofu takes over S.F.'s Japantown at the first annual Soy and Tofu Festival tomorrow. Not many food products have the versatility and nutritional value of tofu, a staple in many Asian cuisines. Sample many varieties of delicious dishes like mapo tofu, yuba, salads, tofu sushi, natto and more. Plus many food vendors like Traveling Takoyaki, SFoodie's favorite Hodo Soy Beanery and popular lunch crowd food truck JapaCurry. They'll be live music and performances of hula, ukulele, rapping (for real), Okinawa sanshin, and S.F. Taiko Dojo Rising Stars. Dope. Don't miss the raffle and a tofu dessert competition with a $100 grand prize, proceeds to benefit the Nichi Bei Foundation.

  • 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.'"
