It's hard going back to class -- particularly a cooking class -- after a holiday spent planning, cooking, and devouring a meal, then reclining on a comfortable couch to recover from it.

All the same, after over a week of rabbit-food rehab, The Classics: Makin' Bacon and Sausage 101 may appeal to even the non- masochistic. Set to take place next Sunday, Dec. 6, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Union SF (2125 Bryant at 19th St.) in the Mission, the class will unfold in two parts: one devoted to bacon, the other to sausage. BaconCamp's Rick Abruzzo will preside over all the seasoning, salting, and stuffing.

Actually, this is Makin' Bacon 2 -- the first class back in August (held at Chicken John's pad in the Mission) sold out in three days, so if you're interested this time around, you might want to jump on it. Happily, the $25 admission fee includes wine and parking, not to mention a starter sachet of curing salt to take home. A portion of the proceeds goes to Slow Food Berkeley, including its school lunch reform initiatives. Buy tickets here. And for more info, call 738-9775.

  • 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.'"
