While cheese and wine events are a dime a dozen in San Francisco, it's not every day there's a tasting with the added value of education. Assuming the average wine-addled brain can soak up some learning, you might just leave the May Cheese and Wine Tasting at Bar Bambino (2931 16th St. at South Van Ness) a little smarter than you arrived. Subtitled "Taste + Learn: Where Do Cheese and Wine Come From?," the afternoon session promises to probe the finer points of wine and cheese production, with plenty of hands-on experience.

Bar Bambino cheese- and cured meats-monger Colin Shaff will explore how various animal milks are treated during cheese production. Christopher Losa, the restaurant's owner and wine director, will plumb wine making's great schism: old-school terroir-driven methods versus what he called a more "hands-on modern approach." It's happening this Sunday, May 31, 3-5 p.m. Cost is $45 per person. E-mail Bar Bambino or call 701-8466 to secure a spot.

  • 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.'"
