Chocolate and Chalk: Together at Last

Posted By on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 4:00 PM

In a few weeks, they'll be eating chalk and drawing with chocolate in the Gourmet Ghetto. Wait! Scratch that, reverse it, as Willy Wonka would say. The annual Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival in Berkeley combines a sidewalk chalk-drawing contest with a wild tasting menu created by area establishments that's themed all around chocolate. Think chocolate chicken tikka masala, Caribbean black bean chocolate soup, and chocolate pizza, in addition to staples like truffles and ice cream. The chalky, chocolaty fun happens Saturday, May 30, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on North Shattuck in Berkeley. Admission is free; 10-packs of chocolate-tasting tickets are $10.

  • 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.'"
