Darkness and Dawn in the Local Food Scene

(We will dearly miss Scharffen Berger, due to depart the Bay Area soon)

Today, Eater SF summarizes a grim start to the year for the local food scene. "The Shutter" lists 25 different restaurants that closed in January alone in San Francisco, and one additional spot in the South Bay. Perhaps worst of all is the news that Scharffen Berger and Joseph Schmidt will be leaving the Bay Area sooner rather than later, as SFGate sadly reported last week. However, Eater also meticulously tracks the openings of bars, lounges, clubs, restaurants and other food-centric hotspots, and currently lists more than a dozen new businesses that were open as of the second half of January. With more on the way, a new dawn has already begun.

  • 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.'"
