Spark is an exciting nonprofit that arranges apprenticeships between local businesses and youth. It includes a fair amount of food-oriented mentoring, setting up what might be considered dream jobs, such as learning the confectionery arts from Recchiuti.

You can support Spark's endeavors and enjoy a dizzying, legal high at the same time via its Sugar Rush benefit tomorrow night (Thursday, Nov. 12), 7-9 p.m. at 111 Minna Gallery (111 Minna at Second St.), where a star-studded list of high-end eateries including Chez Panisse, Boulevard, Michael Mina, Humphry Slocombe, Recchiuti, Spruce, and Millennium will tempt with sweets. There will also be cocktails and a silent auction. Admission is $50 online and $60 at the door.

  • 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.'"
