Listen up everyone, important news: The cute-as-a-button pastry chef Yigit Pura of recently opened Tout Sweet Patisserie in Macy's Union Square will appear on the new season of the Bravo show Millionaire Matchmaker. This isn't Pura's first foray into reality TV -- before he opened the bakery, his claim to fame was being the winner of Season 1 of Top Chef Just Desserts. Now he's throwing his lot in with the always-classy matchmaker Patti Stanger (sample quote: "Look how hot you look. You're the first person I wish I had a penis for.") in hopes of finding love.

You can show your own love for Pura by popping into his bakery/cafe on the third floor of Macy's when you're down in Union Square gawking at the Christmas tree and taking care of your holiday shopping. At the preview party, we were quite partial to Pura's Tesla tart, a blend of passion fruit, yuzu and meyer lemon curd topped with a house-made passion fruit marshmallow, though the patisserie's holiday menu looks worth exploring.

  • 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.'"
