Fall Chocolate Salon

Where: Fort Mason Building A (1 Fort Mason), 345-7500

When: Sun., Nov. 11, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Cost: $20/$25 with taster's journal (purchase in advance via Eventbrite)

The rundown: TasteTV, a local online and on-demand food network, hosts this twice-yearly celebration of chocolate gluttony. The fall edition is ideally timed to get a jump start on holiday shopping. Chocolate is an ideal gift for the loved one who has everything, and if they don't like chocolate, you shouldn't love them.

The vendors are a mix of a few dozen locals and visiting candymakers, with a splash of wine in the mix. This year, we advise you take particular care to seek out homegrown brands like Toffee Talk, Jade Chocolates, and Socola Chocolatier; collectively, these three companies ought to have something perfect for a stocking (or maybe just a well-deserved gift to yourself).

The event is seven hours long, but don't think that doesn't mean you'll see frenzied sampling and buying for pretty much the whole time. Pro tip: Go early to get the best pickins. It's never too early to start the day with chocolate.

  • 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.'"
