Who's The Greenest Restaurant Of Them All?

Did you know that the San Francisco By Area leads the nation in the number of certified green restaurants (more than 100) in any metropolitan area? Some are no-brainers like Cafe Gratitude and Chez Panisse, but who would have thought a booze-soaked near dive like Blondie's Bar and a local mixologist hangout like Elixir would be on the green bandwagon too? Part of the greening effort has been lead by the non-profit Thimmakka, a group that does outreach work in the area, and currently they're leading the first ever Green Restaurant Contest. Who's the Greenest of Them All? asks people (and restaurants themselves) to nominate local eateries that are pushing the environmental envelope. Anyone can participate and the contest runs until May 31. Winners in 15 different categories will be announced June 24, after being judged by a panel of specialists. So if you think you know a place worthy of the green designation, head on over to the website and do some nominating, pronto.

  • 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.'"
