• Call it skittishness before the weekend's roiling Pride festivities, or some freaky premonition (the way your cockapoo gets all quivery pre-earthquake) that Farrah and MJ were about to step the hell off. Whatever the reasons, it was a bare-knuckles week in food, starting with a barrage of sucker punches over a SFoodie column name. Can we get a ref up in here?

• Resident food critic Meredith Brody documented her two-fisted lust affair with something called a Lasker. Here's a hint: It's juicy.

• On the penultimate day of our Queer Food Capital coverage before Pride, we speculated on the lesbian origins of modern food writing. Grab a tissue, it's kind of tear-jerker.

• The producer of this month's jacked-up Great American Food and Music Fest is setting himself up for more, only next time he swears it'll be different. Can you believe him?

• Guest blogger Mando Rayo, aka El Mundo de Mando of Austin-based TacoJournalism, took a salsa-doused bite of the Mission and declared it pretty good.

• And finally, perhaps to shake the week's sketchy mojo, Tamara Palmer thought of her favorite things. Cheer up, everybody: It may have been a sharp-elbowed week in local food, but celebration is damn near upon us.

  • 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.'"
