Condimental divide: In perhaps the ultimate act of foodie patriotism, the NY Times food blog went on a 50-state search for dishes containing the fiery condiment sriracha, like the cheesesteak dumplings with sriracha ketchup at Philly's Fireside Tavern.

Well put: Ideas in Food's Aki Kamozawa blogs in the equivalent of Engrish-kissed haiku. It's lovely -- like today's meditation on asparagus-eating: Ingredients and how we eat them are often inspiring. Asparagus, long and slender, brittle and toothsome screams to be eaten with your fingers. Often times fingers and setting do not mingle well.

  • 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.'"
