Someone been takin' bitter pills: Guest-whining at Eater SF, Citysearch editor Patrick Heig gets his 2(x)ists in a twist over what he suggests is the city's bogus street-food fad. In Heig's cosmology there's authentic street food (like Manhattan's falafel carts) and pathetic, lemonade-stand street food. If we're so desperate for street food that we're willing to bestow that title on a guy selling cookies in Dolores Park, c'mon, let's not embarrass ourselves here. It's a fucking snickerdoodle. Calm down. Whatever, dude -- give it time.

Food writer Regina Schrambling tells the nation what S.F. already knows: Lard's negative connotations of flowing flesh and vats of grease and epithets like lardass and tub of lard have been absurd hurdles.

  • 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.'"
