  • Sift's Pink Champagne Whoopie Cookie.

Sift Cupcake & Dessert Bar sent the Cook E. Monster a box of samples as a preview of its forthcoming location in San Francisco, which opens later this summer in the former Dumplings & Buns space (2411 California). Sift already has stores in Napa, Santa Rosa, and Cotati as well as a truck called the Sifter.

Sift's menu features cupcakes, cookies, ice cream sandwiches, French macarons, and an invention called cruffles, chocolate dipped and sprinkle-topped cupcake "truffles." Of the samples that were sent, what was surprising is that the cookie that frightened the Cook E. Monster most in terms of appearance turned out to be the most memorable of the bunch.

We're not girly enough to typically be very accepting of a pink cookie with pink sprinkles. but the chewy raspberry cookies that sandwich the champagne frosting (which tastes rather like vanilla) in a concoction called the Pink Champagne Whoopie Cookie make this an unusual success.

Lesson learned here: Never judge a cookie by its cover.

  • 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.'"
