Attention Locavores: Bay Area Local Food Guide Release Party

Posted By on Thu, Jun 26, 2008 at 9:57 AM


Always wanted to become a locavore but never knew exactly how to start? Well, here's your chance: the 2nd Edition Bay Area Local Food Guide is coming! It lists over one thousand spots in the Bay Area that buy and sell local food -- from restaurants and retailers to farmers markets and caterers. To celebrate, Buy Fresh Buy Local and the Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) are throwing a party at the Fort Mason Officer's Club (1 Fort Mason) this afternoon, Thursday, June 26, beginning at 4:30. Local food and wine will be in abundance (check the complete list here), and you'll have the chance to meet some of the fine folks who produce these goodies. Then at 6:30 a local food panel convenes to grapple with the question 'Why Local is the Answer.' Among the panelists are Jered Lawson of Pie Ranch, Alison Negrin of John Muir Health, and Simon Richard of Bi-Rite Market -- moderated by Bill Fujimoto of Monterey Market. Dessert is at 7:30, along with farmer-to-chef networking. The event runs $30 per person. Buy yours at Brown Paper Tickets or at the door. For more information call 510-832-4625.

  • 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.'"
