Stroll, shop, repeat: with La Fromagerie moving into the same 'hood as Mr. and Miscellaneous, Poco Dolce and Little Nib, this increasingly morphing Third Street area is becoming an easy stop for gourmet goods. It's easy to get cheesy at La Fromagerie, which is housed in a light, sweet spot. The petite sized store from French Alps native Ruben Donze offers cheese of the European and domestic variety, charcuterie, escargots, fruity jams, Firebrand artisan bread and truffle mousse ($5.99).

Donze made room for the cheese shop by segmenting and transforming his Bouvet warehouse space in the American Industrial Center. I was able to sample -- always a great idea with fancy cheese -- before buying ½ a pound of Ossau-Iraty AOC, which is a French cheese made with sheep's milk. There's an adorable image of a cow to admire while you mull your cheeseboard options, and frozen options abound.

  • 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.'"
