On Wednesday, two Michelin-starred chefs are teaming up for a six-course Tuscan dinner at Luce in the InterContinental Hotel (888 Howard at Fifth St.). Luce chef Dominique Crenn is collaborating with Donatella Zampoli, exec chef for the wine estates of Marchesi de' Frescobaldi. Dinners' served from 5:30 p.m. on, though it's not an affair with formal seatings, but rather a drop-in-and-eat-when-you-like dealio. Menu highlights include duck breast with Parmesan risotto and gnocchi with bone marrow and lobster.

The two chefs are friends, and plan to be in the dining room for co-shmoozing. Dinner is $75 -- $105 with wine pairings from Frescobaldi. A portion of the sales benefit CUESA. For rezzies, call 616-6566, or reserve at Open Table.

  • 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.'"
