4th Annual FoodBuzz Taste Pavilion

Where: City View at the Metreon, 101 Fourth St. (at Mission), 369-6000

When: Sat., Oct. 20, 1-4 p.m.

Cost: $40 (purchase in advance via Eventbrite)

The rundown: The FoodBuzz Blogger Festival takes place on October 19-20 in various locations in San Francisco and costs close to $400 to register for the full schedule, which includes various seminars and panel discussions. Alternatively, you can choose to spend about 10% of that on one tasting event, which is the culmination of the weekend's activities.

With 60 food and beverage vendors participating in the event (full list TBD; past years have included a mix of small food companies and restaurants), the tasting event also the session at the conference with the most actual food.

While some people do enjoy the networking aspect of these conferences, we'd venture that you can still do a fair bit of schmoozing within these three hours, and at a fraction of the cost. If you do happen to splurge for the full conference, you're allowed to bring one guest to Taste Pavilion for free, and can purchase additional guest tickets for $20 each.

  • 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.'"
