Did we mention there were corndogs? - DELANO'S IGA

There are times when the corner late-night liquor deli just won't cut it. If this blogger ever needs ingredients for a midnight cooking or baking session (or hey, an actual late-night party!), it's off to DeLano's IGA we go. Three of the locally owned and operated San Francisco stores are open 24 hours a day, and offer a standard selection of pantry, meat, dairy, baked goods, and organic ingredients. Vitaminwater, dried beans, organic blueberries, Brown Cow maple-flavored yogurt, beer, and soy milk have a home in the Mission DeLano IGA (1245 South Van Ness Ave. at 23rd St.). So do Rocky chickens, chorizo, and Mexican melting cheeses. This may not be the most exciting place to shop -- something about all those bright lights leave us feeling a little shy -- and locavores may turn their noses up. But the 24-hour open-door policy is a soothing option.

DeLano's other S.F. locations: 6333 Geary at 27th Ave., 4201 18th St, at Castro, and 1245 South Van Ness at 23rd St.

  • 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.'"
