It's Friday! This week was better than last week! What better way to celebrate/pass the time to beer o'clock than by watching a video of the most adorable tiger cub on earth eating her first solid food? (That is a trick question. There is no better way.)

Here Are Some Adorable Animals Eating Things

While the first solid food for most of us was some sort of jarred glop that ended up everywhere but our mouth, the eight-week-old cub at the S.F. Zoo is eating her first bowl of raw meat with grace and dignity, as you can see in this video from the San Francisco Zoo:

Awww, they grow up so fast. A visit to the zoo might be necessary this weekend.

  • 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.'"
