Do your dream of hot dog slices, great fried balls of macaroni and cheese, and can't stop humming the Rice-A-Roni jingle? Well, we have got the teenage wet dream treat for you.

If you are lucky on Thursday or Saturday and the super cool clique at the 4505 Meats food stand at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market feels like blessing you with "Frankaroni" written on their specials board, you can get to sit and eat at the proverbial cool lunch table.

They take the same 4505 housemade uncured hot dog that you know and, if you've met, already love, and slice up in macaroni and cheese gooeyness that is then fried to sweet golden perfection. It has crunch on the outside, soft richness on the inside and meat slices that you are hoping will be present in every bite.

The whole convenient combination of heart-attack fuel and summation of your dreams comes in a holdable square that you can eat with no utensils getting in your way. We hate to sound like an after-school special, but it's time to get selective about the wieners getting into your hot pocket!

  • 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.'"
