When I was younger I marked the changing seasons by the rotation of holiday-themed cookies on display at my favorite bakeries. And the best thing about reverting back into my childlike state of pre-holiday excitement as an adult is that I am no longer told "not before dinner" as I gaze longingly into the glass case full of sugary delights.

Two Local Pumpkin Beers to Get You Excited About Fall

When I stumbled upon a big, icing-covered, sprinkle-topped, pumpkin-shaped cookie at Angelina's Café in the Richmond District, I couldn't help but stop and think why the hell not?! It was one of those cookies where the icing was a little bit hard and the cookie was a little bit soft and I bit into it and thought yes, this is what life should always taste like, especially when it only costs $2.25. I'll be back soon to further encourage my Halloween holiday indulgences and to try the cocoa rice crispy treats with orange pumpkin sprinkles. What a wonderful season to eat, drink, and be scary!

  • 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.'"
