This Week: Slow Dinners Creep Into The Bay Area

Posted By on Mon, Aug 25, 2008 at 12:43 PM


As most foodies in town already know, Slow Food Nation is plopping its giant, sustainable, locally-sourced, green ass on the Bay Area starting this week with enough food, events, and good old fashioned hype to choke a free-range, grass-fed cow. Among the festivities are a ton of Slow Dinners, where local restaurants team up with non-profits for special mash-up meals. Here are two to watch:

Delfina Restaurant and La Cocina Community Kitchen's "Cucina-Cocina" dinner, happening this Thursday, Aug. 28 at Delfina (3621 18th) in the Mission. The dinner will showcase a special alla carte menu chock full of Delfina's Italian dishes alongside a selection of La Cocina's Latin food specialties. Reservations are required. Call Delfina at 415-552-4055.

Nopa (560 Divisadero at Hayes) and the Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) are putting together a dinner of seasonally-inspired urban rustic fare meant to highlight Nopa's local sourcing practices and CAFF's Buy Fresh Buy Local campaign, which helps sustainable, family-owned farms keep doing what they do best. So snag a few seats by calling 415-864-8643 and do what you do best: eat, eat, eat. It's happening this Friday, Aug. 29.

  • 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.'"
