Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Blowing smoke: Bay Area Bites' Andrew Simmons is ripped for a smackdown. He's blogged an earnest, sweaty argument for good barbecue, along the way bitch-slapping writers he considers terminally clueless (big ouch to Chron's Amanda Gold). But one particular aside smarts like a burn to the forearm: Sadly, like real bagels and perfect pizza slices, there's something about [barbecue] San Francisco doesn't quite get. Sorry, Andrew: Observe food-porn evidence from The Daily Feed (scroll down a bit), big-pixel proof that Pizzaiolo totally gets pizza. On second thought, maybe you meant to exempt Oakland from your hatin'?

Awwww: Just in time to remind us to buy one of those $10 cards that, when opened, plays a tinny version of James Brown's "I Feel Good," Food Gal conjures up a sweet Father's Day memory set in a Chinatown dive. And with crispy meat, no less. Nicely done.

  • 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.'"
