SF Weekly's Seven-Day Dish

Posted By on Wed, Aug 13, 2008 at 3:10 PM


Around Town:

After selling her chocolate truffles wholesale for two years and looking for the perfect spot to open a shop for more than a year, Stephanie Marcon, owner of Coco-Luxe Boutique & Hot Chocolate Bar (1673 Haight at Cole), jumped at the chance for a storefront on Haight: "We're pretty much the only chocolate shop in the area, and the weather dictates that people would like a hot cocoa, so business has been great," she says. "It seemed like a natural spot for us. It fits the personality of the store." The big sellers since Coco-Luxe opened in late July have been the hot cocoa ($4) and the hot pudding ($4), which Marcon describes as "definitely thicker than the standard hot beverage, but meant for drinking -- think bittersweet chocolate, no dairy, with the texture of runny chocolate pudding." For something with a little jolt, check out the Luxe Mocha (hot cocoa with a shot of Blue Bottle espresso) or the Devil's Vice (hot pudding with espresso). For info, call 367-4012 or visit

  • 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.'"
