  • Go on -- do it out of altruism.
If the idea of eating delish fries, crêpes, salads, or mussels and drinking Belgian beer in a sexy setting while supporting a local food organization sounds good, consider a seat at Frjtz Fries Valencia on Wednesday, August 19. That's the night Frjtz Valencia is donating 40 percent of sales to La Cocina, the Mission's small-biz incubator for food entrepreneurs.

Frjtz's dipping sauces range from Thai chili ketchup and Parmesan-peppercorn ranch to tamarind-cashew and smoky honey mustard -- the menu's jammed with lots more, too. La Cocina's calendar is just as jammed, what with the first-ever San Francisco Street Food Festival it's organizing, including a scavenger hunt, silent auction, street-food photo contest, and -- oh yeah -- plenty of street food. The one-day extravaganza hits Saturday, August 22. Spread the word -- maybe while scarfing fries at Frjtz.

  • 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.'"
