Licked: New Hoodscope blogger Anne serves up a triple scoop of Mitchell's, the circa-1953 ice cream joint that, really, should be granted civic landmark status. Anne even whips out her calculator to come up with a figure we won't argue with: "The U.S. enjoys an average of 48 pints of ice cream per person, per year," she blogs, "more than any other country. That's over 30 million pints consumed in San Francisco alone!" Check out Anne's tribute here; then check out SF Weekly food critic Jonathan Kauffman's ode to Mitchell's langka (jackfruit), number 75 on SFoodie's list-in-progress of our 92 favorite local eats.

  • 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.'"
