  • Appleman: armed with new challenges.
• It was a week all about moving on, starting with Meredith Brody's Hot Meal report on Five, the luxe-y Berkeley hotel eatery that marks the re-appearance of beloved S.F. chef Scott Howard. She's dreaming about a return.

• Mary Ladd tracked another re-appearance: After breaking hearts for departing the Mission, Suriya Thai surfaced in SOMA. Hey Valencia Street: see ya, wouldn't wanna be ya.

• Tamara Palmer took a late-night stroll through Lower Haight wiener culture in Hot Dog Alley. A Tenderloin never tasted so good.

• Matthew Stafford pondered changes to the gimlet, a cocktail loved by a certain literary dick. Sure, the classic formula is too sweet for modern tastes, but that shouldn't be license to crazy it up with stuff like elderflower syrup. You know?

• Tamara Palmer reported on changes that just might make Dolores Park a tad less trashy. Literally.

• And finally, Meredith Brody described the imminent departure from A16 and SPQR by a certain ink-sleeved chef with a shiny head and a national following. It was fun while it lasted, right? Kind of like the week in SFoodie.

  • 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.'"
