Going back to school never sounded so tasty. The Cheese School of San Francisco (2155 Powell at Francisco) has a new slate of classes geared toward food service professionals and serious cheese enthusiasts alike. This blogger once attended a class at The Cheese School and found it appealing, without the kind of intimidation and windbag factors that can turn food and wine courses into terminally boring downers. At our class, there was little chance of going hungry -- the carefully thought out samples were plentiful. If you're seriously considering becoming a fromager, the school's three-day intensive program ($980) runs October 11-13. It promises to get participants ready "to procure, sell, care for, and serve premium cheeses." Certificate of completion, meals, and take home materials are included. There are also tasting tour classes, one-night affairs for $65 -- perfect if you only aim to master Cheese 101.

  • 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.'"
