Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

That's half a century in restaurant years: Food Gal clocks the weekend's edible events, including galas hyping the five-year anniversary of Restaurant Michael Mina. We know: $125 a pop is steep these days. But for all you dealers coming off a good week, check out what you get (through tomorrow): lobster corndog, poularde (a fancy French adolescent chicken), root beer float. Might be a classy alternative to the county fair. Also, there's special stuff themed around Mina's Clock Bar well into next week, including mixology guest stars Erik Adkins of Heaven's Dog and Scott Beattie, who became a star at Cyrus in Healdsburg. Full details at the Gal.

Cheesy consolation: Just in case you're not a dealer with a fat stack, you might want to take Gene Miguel's advice on Hoodscope (via the Ex). The pupusas at Balompie Café look like fitting consolation for the Mina prix fixe you're not having. Then again, they might be way more satisfying. Just sayin'.

  • 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.'"
