No doubt bacon and potato chips are the two favorite food groups of many a SFoodie reader. Turns out you may soon be able to combine the two, thanks to an emerging street-food vendor named Bill (last name withheld for licensing reasons).

Last Friday, Burrito Justice was on the scene in Dolores Park to snag a bag of Bill's bacon potato chips, on what turned out to be his first foray into vending (he does something that sounds seriously boring for a high-tech company during the day). Bill showed up with a second batch the following Sunday.

  • 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.'"
