Word of a mysterious cheese cart setting up in Union Square this Saturday afternoon has been circulating through the Twitterverse for the past 24 hours. We think we've unmasked the proprietor/perpetrator. An anonymous insider confirmed to SFoodie that it's none other than Olympic figure skating champion Brian Boitano, taping an upcoming episode of his Food Network series, What Would Brian Boitano Make?

It's unclear whether Boitano will be selling or giving away the various cheese-laden dishes he'll be making, and since the Union Square ice has melted for the year, he won't be able to serve them with a 'Tano triple lutz. He'll also reportedly hit Precita Park the next day to sample street food from local vendors. We advise checking the SF Cart Project street food locator that morning for details.

It seems a plan hatched last year may finally be coming to fruition. SFoodie editor John Birdsall reported in November

that Boitano and his Food Network casting friends had their eye on

tapping the S.F. street-cart scene for an upcoming episode. Look for

the cheese cart Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m.

  • 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.'"
