Launched in December, Roaming Hunger is a San Francisco-based Web site providing elusive inter-connectivity among street-food purveyors across the country. It's a convenient way to follow Twitter feeds, sort by food type (whether, say, sweet or vegetarian), and also to give love to favorite vendors. The blog section is beginning to heat up, with the most recent post documenting last weekend's inaugural L.A. Street Food Festival. Founder Ross Resnick was inspired to create Roaming Hunger after living in Hong Kong and traveling extensively throughout Southeast Asia five years ago.

"I was intrigued by the variety of street food options and ate from the vendors whenever I could," Resnick told SFoodie. "It was sort of a culture shock when I came home to see how underdeveloped we were in street food availability. Once the domestic street food scene emerged, I began keeping track of all the vendors as they arose. I realized this would be a great public service to share this info and help bring a greater awareness to the movement.

"Plus," he added, "I just love to eat."

  • 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.'"
