Sugar Highs at the Fiona's Sweetshoppe Happy Hour

Posted By on Mon, Jul 6, 2009 at 1:43 PM

Fiona's Sweetshoppe (214 Sutter at Kearny) is a tiny gem of a confectionery downtown where most of your key British sugar needs, from Lion and Star bars to Curly Wurlys and Wine Gums, all have a tidy spot. But the real highlight are the hard candies sold by the quarter pound out of apothecary-like jars.

This month, the store is holding its version of happy hour from 6 to 7 p.m. on weekdays, offering a 25 percent discount on all hard sweets. SFoodie recommends the rhubarb and custard sweets, the sour apple balls, and the West Indian lime fizzy candies, but there are all sorts of vibrantly flavored offerings from which to choose.

  • 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.'"
