• It was a trying week for lovers of the new-school street-food scene: Sexy Soup Lady got shut down last weekend, prompting all kinds of Twitter-gazing. Were public tweets too indiscrete? Or have Linda Street residents just turned all grampa-cranky?

• Local news took notice, enlisting SFoodie's own Tamara Palmer on a fruitless search for mobile eats. Film at 11.

• And with even the Wall Street Journal drooling over street food, we corralled some national stars of cart and truck cuisine.

• Robert Kenner, director of the new shock-doc Food, Inc., talked with SFoodie about Big Ag: They largely refused to talk for his film, but now that's it out, they won't shut up.

• Meanwhile, Tyler Florence, the handsomely doughy TV food star holed up in Marin, was super pissed about the disappearance of a certain ginormous utensil. Have an extra mojito during cocktail hour tonight, TyFlo -- like the rest of us, you survived a janky week in local food.

  • 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.'"
