Inforum, the division of the Commonwealth Club "by and for people in their 20s and 30s," is presenting a program that (adult) children of all ages can appreciate. Moderated by Jessica Battilana of 7x7, "The State of Pastry in SF" will bring together maverick sweet chefs Luis Villavelazquez (Absinthe), Elizabeth Falkner (Citizen Cake), William Werner (Quince), and Bill Corbett (Michael Mina) to survey their different directions in dessert as well as discuss the current cravings of the city.

"The State of Pastry in SF" begins with the panel discussion at 6:30 p.m. and will be followed by the all-important tasting and networking reception at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1. Admission is $20 ($12 Commonwealth Club members).

  • 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.'"
