Yes, there was pig belly, but you had to wait for that one-ounce wine pour. Less than half an hour into last night's sold-out Dine About Town launch party under the Westfield San Francisco Centre dome, the lines for wine were 18 to 20 deep. The food was for the most part, meat-centric. Chouchou won the prize for variety (three offerings); Fish & Farm's pork belly and Luce's beef cheek slider tied for best meaty delight. Other restaurants dishing it out included Café Andree, Chez Papa Resto, Lark Creek Steak, and Urban Tavern. Dine About Town starts tomorrow; check out Jonathan Kauffman's advice for negotiating the options. Additional chef shots after the jump.

  • 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.'"
