History Is Delicious 

Wednesday, Feb 10 2010
We've heard some people don't like grits. Excellent: More for us. Over the five days of the sf|noir Wine and Food Event, a vast array of Caribbean, African, Creole, Southern, vegan, and soul food items will be on the menu as a tasty celebration of Black History Month, along with a lot of wine, poetry, and other fun. But tonight's Shrimp and Grits Taste-Off at the Museum of the African Diaspora involves Bay Area chefs' specific interpretations of the classic African-American dish, each with a wine pairing. If this is not your idea of "I must have been very good in a past life," then you are crazy, and will please enjoy the other sf|noir events and leave the grits to us. Many of the wines at these events are from African-American–owned wineries, notably at the Wine and Food Gala on Feb. 27, which features more than 100 wines.

  • 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.'"
