The Rundown: Like most educational institutions in California, CCSF's culinary arts and hospitality studies department is understaffed and underfunded. The department will open its kichens with guided tours by faculty and students celebrating street food offerings inspired by North Beach, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, a taco truck from the Mission, and a farmers' market. Then there's Ghirardelli Square treats to end it on a sweet note.

The hospitality program is the first public two-year program in the country and the first to emphasize the culinary arts. Donations will help with scholarships and student programs. Featured in the silent and live auctions are dinners from Benu, Gary Danko and Foreign Cinema as well a whole pig butchery class.

  • 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.'"
