It Isn't a Party Until Somebody Cries: The Week in SFoodie

Posted By on Fri, Jun 19, 2009 at 5:11 PM

• It was an unapologetic week of eating, with a tear or two thrown in for good measure. New SFoodie blogger Mary Ladd was busted gorging on the tasty but little-known savory foods at Mission Pie. Meanwhile, Matthew Stafford downed a mai tai (or two) in anticipation of summer.

• We dropped our bag lunch in the bin and checked out two places still too new to have scuff marks on the baseboards or gum under the seats: Marino in Hayes Valley and Wexler's in the FiDi.

• SFoodie blogger Tamara Palmer rocked a hairnet to take an insider's tour of the See's Candies factory in South San Francisco. Her hair has looked a little compacted ever since, but, well, somebody had to do it.

• The organizers of last Saturday's great clusterf**k (otherwise known as the Great American Food and Music Fest) issued mea culpas -- one, literally, with tears in his eyes. Peed-off commenters didn't exactly hand him a tissue.

• Not everyone was quite so weepy. The city's gearing up for next Sunday's massive Pride celebration, and SFoodie offered its own guides for navigating local LGBT food culture. Go ahead, order that third gimlet: Even before the big bash begins, it's been a week of celebration.

  • 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.'"
