You might have previously used Uber, which bills itself as "San Francisco's only on-demand black car service," for a stylish ride home after a drunken night out, but the app-driven company is offering a much sweeter proposition from noon to 6 p.m. this Friday (July 13): On-demand ice cream.

That day, Uber is promising that an ice cream truck will show up within 10 minutes of summoning it on your iPhone or Android and offer a party pack of ice cream treats that serves five for $12. And we're not talking Good Humor, here -- participating trucks are San Francisco's Garden Creamery, Aunt LaLi of Santa Cruz, San Jose's Twisted Chill, Golden Ice Cream of Redwood City, and Sonoma's Molly Moo's.

Far be it from us to jump on every corporate promotion out there, but this one seems worth a try.

  • 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.'"
