SFoodie's Andrew Simmons first reported on Hidden Menu during its October launch. The local blog unveils secret, off-menu items at bars and restaurants. Part of this site's charm lies in the fact that it isn't self-promotional. It's as laidback and yet as fierce as those secret animal style fries, a chill presence amidst the Bay Area's many, many food blogs.

Our hunch to check back in with Hidden Menu now, a few months later, was a good one, since the posts are still revelatory and coming consistently. Did you know you can get bacon focaccia at Dynamo Donuts if you get there just after 8 a.m., or that Tartine Bakery will make you the house's signature Tartine toast of that addictive bread, sweet butter, and orange marmalade? Neither did we. We're bookmarking the site so we'll be the second to know about some great secrets.

  • 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.'"
