Watch Adam Richman stuff himself here.
It may not have foodies buzzing the way Anthony Bourdain's visit last spring did, but fellow Travel Channel glutton Adam Richman visits San Francisco tonight to overeat on Man v. Food. Richman feasts on gut-bomb sandwiches at Yelpers' fave Ike's Place (3506 16th St. at Valencia), loses himself in the Mission-Style Super Burrito at Taqueria la Cumbre (515 Valencia at 16th St.), and, for dessert, there's the $34.95 Kitchen Sink at the San Francisco Creamery -- which, hey, is in Walnut Creek (1370 Locust at Cypress). But even Bourdain crossed the bridge to try taco trucks in Oakland!

The show premieres tonight at 7 p.m., or, as they say, check your local listings, because on satellite services like ours, that's 4 p.m. And you can go online at 7:30 for a live video chat with Adam, the hardest working man in show business. Bonus video: Richman talks to tourists in the Haight.

  • 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.'"
