Eat It 

Wednesday, Sep 9 2009
There's nothing like reading about the very real Great Pacific Garbage Patch (1500 miles of plastic bottles, bags, and ephemera swirling around in the ocean, folks) to paralyze any modern human uninterested in being part of a dying race. We've gotten the message -- send less detritus to the landfill -- and San Franciscans, at least, are starting to compost everything from tea bags to tomato stems. We use the Prius, the solar panels, and the biodegradable garbage bags, but another important piece in the walk-gentler pie is making conscientious choices about the food we eat. To address this and other pressing concerns, the people of Down to a Science bring experts into cafes to deliver straightforward, non-technical ten-to-twenty-minute talks, followed by conversation. Today's event features Laura Stec and Eugene Cordero's freshly minted book Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite out of Global Warming. The pair explain how to reduce your carbon footprint by shopping for food produced locally and organically, then provide strategies to make this easy and delicious. In a foodie town such as ours, there's every reason to eat -- and then green-bin -- the best.

  • 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.'"
