For some reason cassoulet, the slow-cooked, meat-packed bean gratin originally from Southwest France, has become a New Year's tradition.

No better place to experience it locally than Le Central, where the cassoulet is said to have cooked (according to this morning's update on the restaurant's Website) for 12,722 days.

Now, don't start overthinking just how unappetizing Le Central's claim is. Put on a shirt with sleeves, crowd into the ur-Parisian dining room, and just order the damn thing,with a glass of house Chardonnay. Reflecting on the last 364 days as you chew is totally up to you.

Le Central Bistro 453 Bush (at Grant), 391-2233

  • 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.'"
