Rec and Park informed street-food applicants about which city parks they'd be offered contracts for yesterday. Let's Be Frank's Larry Bain expressed disappointment that the sustainable hot dog company wouldn't be awarded the contract for Dolores Park, but instead was being asked to consider Justin Herman Plaza and the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. Bain said Dolores Park had been offered to both small-business incubator La Cocina and Blue Bottle Coffee. La Cocina and client business Onigilly have both been picked for contracts at Justin Herman, too.

Despite his disappointment, Bain congratulated Rec and Park on choosing La Cocina for the prime Mission contract. "I think La Cocina is a great choice, " Bain said. "They are doing some wonderful food, and have access to so many entrepreneurs. It really aligns with the city's commitment to helping small businesses. It's fantastic to give a nonprofit a premier spot."

Bain said he and his Let's Be Frank partners would consider cart locations at Justin Herrman and the Conservancy, and make a decision by Friday. He said it's possible they'd decide to accept contracts for both sites, as well as be able cater occasional park events. Bain said it's likely a Let's Be Frank cart would sell at Justin Hermann on weekdays and possibly Saturdays, while the Conservatory could probably support a cart only on weekends.

  • 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.'"
