Top Chocolatier Pairing This Saturday

Posted By on Tue, Jan 13, 2009 at 6:15 PM

Personal extensive research done strictly on your behalf has concluded that CocoaBella Chocolates has succeeded in selecting three of this country's most innovative modern candy wizards for its upcoming "Top Chocolatier Pairing Event." Missouri's Christopher Elbow (who also operates a San Francisco boutique at 401 Hayes), Oregon's Jeff Shepherd of Lillie Belle and Connecticut's Fritz Knipschildt will be on hand to unveil their new collective magic.  These three leave few flavors unturned, from blue cheese (Lillie Belle) and absinthe (Elbow) to escargot (which Knipschildt serves with chocolate at his restaurant). Those who play it safer than that needn't worry as they have long mastered the classics as well. This takes place on Saturday, January 17 from 8 to 9 p.m. at CocoaBella (2102 Union). Admission is $20, which also includes drinks.

  • 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.'"
