Krispy Kreme has gotten a lot of patriotic attention this week with their doughnut giveaways, yet we should not forget the real fried patron saint of San Francisco: Boriana's Corner bomboloni at the Ferry Building.

Whether filled with Nutella, raspberry or (the personal favorite) custard, it's a four-bite indulgence that brings an instant flush of happiness.—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.'"
