Wednesday Night: Christopher Elbow Wine and Chocolate Pairing

Posted By on Tue, Sep 9, 2008 at 11:17 PM


From Kevin Blum's City Dish comes word of a chocolate and wine pairing at Christopher Elbow's enticing boutique, an alert that is especially appreciated since this special event isn't even mentioned on the Elbow Web site. Elbow's artisanal pieces are both visually arresting and leftfield and often dip into alcohol for inspiration, such as with the absinthe truffle, cabernet caramel and bourbon pecan marzipan. Four pairings are planned for the evening: Montsarra Cava sparkling wine with white chocolate and strawberry caramel, Tuke Holdsworth tawny port with Tanzanie dark 70% bonbon, Broadbent Madeira with goat cheese and honey bonbon, and Brachetto Mariposa Casalone 2007 with raspberry bonbon. The tasting takes place on Wednesday, September 10 from 7-8 p.m. at Christopher Elbow, 401 Hayes (at Gough). Tickets are $30 and available through — Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
