"We inhabit a subculture peculiarly steeped in pork fat," blogged SFoodie editor John Birdsall earlier this afternoon, speaking of the porcine pleasures available in the Ferry Building. To that we humbly add the bacon peanut butter brownie, available on select Thursdays (when there's a street food-focused Farmers Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) at star butcher Ryan Farr's 4505 Meats stall.

Bacon sweets may have jumped the shark a long time ago, but this is certainly more sophisticated than most of the mass-marketed products out there that we've tried. Served in a small cup, it's not an exaggeration to say that this brownie almost tastes more like a savory appetizer than a dessert simply because that thick, meaty slab on top (pasted on by rich, creamy peanut butter) dominates the other flavors. If you don't pick it off and eat it first, that is.

  • 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.'"
