  • Goldstein: Local Mediterranean food pioneer.
Mediterranean cuisine hounds will want to check out the Joyce Goldstein and Hoss Zaré dinner benefit this Sunday, July 12, at Zaré at Fly Trap (606 Folsom at Second St.). Goldstein, a prolific cookbook author and recipient of several James Beard awards, is cooking a sort of tag-team dinner in five courses with her buddy Zaré. The idea is to showcase the evolution of Mediterranean cuisine in the Bay Area over the last three decades -- much of which Goldstein and Zaré are personally responsible for.

The dinner will be something of a family affair, too, with master sommeliers Evan Goldstein (Joyce's son) and Chris Blanchard on hand to serve a selection of Mediterranean wines. Each will pour a small glass of his chosen pairing for each course. The evening starts with a Champagne reception and light appetizers at 6 p.m., with dinner following at 7 p.m. The event costs $200 per person - not cheap, except that proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels of San Francisco. For reservations and information, contact Zaré general manager Mario Nocifera at 243-0580, or

  • 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.'"
