All through December, SFoodie is bringing you local gift ideas for the food obsessives in your life.

Even after two years of business in San Francisco, Fatted Calf Charcuterie (which began in Napa) still flies under the radar of some of the city's meat lovers. Like its counterparts at Boccalone and 4505 Meats, the shop offers many gift-worthy meat products at an affordable price point that will blow away those plastic-packed Gallo joints that show up at all the holiday parties.

Sure, you can bring typical Costco stuff, or you can present a beautiful package of Fatted Calf fegatelli (air-dried Corsican salami with red wine), five-spice lamb bacon, Prather Ranch beef jerky, or fresh black truffle pork sausage. It may be a last-minute gift, but it's a thoughtful present to give to your special carnivore.

  • 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.'"
