In no particular order, the five most memorable things I consumed this week, by plate or laptop:

1. As long as Namu is giving away dishes like squid stir-fried with spicy greens and suckling pig, you might want to take the Richmond restaurant up on its offer.

2. Congratulations to the city for beginning to legitimize street-food carts by offering La Cocina the chance to operate one (or more) in Dolores Park and Justin Herman Plaza. It's (literally) like getting a dozen vendors in one.

3. In other people's blogs, Serious Eats posted the loveliest online video of Intelligentsia's Kyle Glanville demonstrating how to pull a shot of espresso. And Robb Walsh at the Houston Press explained the reason electric turkey roaster ovens exist. And it's not to roast turkey.

4. Three reasons to get out of bed on Saturday: Drink winter beer. Engage in battle: punch at Omnivore Books. And heckle Brian Boitano.

5. My bite o' the week: Investigating the best time to get Rico Pan's quesadilla fresh from the oven required three trips to the Salvadoran bakery. So far.

  • 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.'"
