Welcome to the Land of Chocolate 

According to Roget’s Thesaurus, there are only five synonyms for the verb drool. We, however, can think of others — they’re the names of the more than two dozen vendors participating in the 13th Annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival. Here are just a few teasers from this year’s installment of every chocoholic’s dream fest:

Amore Chocolate Pizza
Boomerang Chocolate Martinis
Ciao Bella Gelato
Napa Valley Fudge Company
Young’s Double Chocolate Stout

We could go on (really, we could!) but we have to wipe the saliva from our lips. You’ll need plenty of napkins, as well a few dollars to enjoy tasting all the deliciousness, when you attend this so-called “free” event — there’s simply no way to walk inside and somehow miraculously leave without paying for a few bites (or, in the case of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, beers). As Homer Simpson so elequently phrased it: “Mmmmmm ... chocolate.” — John Graham

  • 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.'"
