New Restaurant Concept Rival Merges Cooking Competitions With Fine Dining

There's a new restaurant concept in town, and no, it doesn't involve pop-ups, chef-grown produce, or unique craft cocktails. Rather than being influenced by the particular whims of a chef, Rival takes its cues from another equally demanding force:…

Who Makes the Better American IPA: SF's 21st Amendment or San Leandro's Drake's?

Like burritos and sourdough bread, we've got no shortage of good craft beers in the Bay Area. Just down the street from my apartment are a craft beer pub, a beer garden, and two breweries, with at least two more…

Who Makes the Better Italian Sub: S.F.'s Molinari or Oakland's Genova?

"This is so not Jersey," my Garden State-bred friend often sighs after we pass yet another disappointing deli, bakery, or slice joint while wandering around the city. The food, and the burly men that serve it, are never quite burly…

  • 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.'"
