  • The foie gras ice cream sandwich: Get there before the protesters do.
Mission ice cream innovator Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.) has its famous (and controversial) foie gras ice cream sandwiches today. For $5, you get some chilly and creamy duck liver goodness, nestled between two gingersnaps. In related meat-sweets news, Humphry launched lard caramels this week. Like its lard shortbread cookies, they're something of a collaboration with -- or maybe homage to -- Boccalone, the lard's source. Both Humphry and Boccalone Salumeria (One Ferry Building at the Embarcadero) are carrying them, $3.50 for a pack of four. Demand is said to be high. On Wednesday, Humphry's Jake Godby tweeted that "Kevin & Eli from Top Chef got the last pack." Elimination doesn't seem to be a challenge today, however. Apparently there's a steady stash for the takin'.

  • 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.'"
