  • Recchiuti's makin' Whoopie.
Recchiuti Confections (1 Ferry Bldg. at Embarcadero) has a new treat in its store for the summer: Whoopie pies, a retro cake 'n cream sandwich treat that was recently tipped by the New York Times to be back on the rise. But proprietor Michael Recchiuti doesn't do anything ordinary, so his version of makin' Whoopie (which run two for $8) includes candied orange and a lush coating of dark chocolate.

Recchiuti also just announced on his Twitter feed that he'll host an ice cream social this Wednesday, July 15, from noon to 2 p.m. in a secret spot; follow him there for more info as the event gets closer. If the Taste media preview we attended recently, during which he fed us shiitake-chocolate malt ice cream sandwiches and sent us home with pints of burnt caramel ice cream, is any indication, this isn't something that's sensible to miss.

  • 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.'"
