Who knew? National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day is Feb. 23.
  • Who knew? National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day is Feb. 23.
Just about every day brings a different national food holiday, and next week is especially packed with weirdness. A small sampling:

Mon., Feb. 22:
It's National Cherry Pie Day; grab a juicy slice to go at Mission Pie (2901 Mission at 25th St.).

Tues., Feb. 23:
Coincidentally, it's National Banana Bread Day and National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Believe it or not, both are available for purchase at Lotta's Bakery (1720 Polk at Washington).

Weds., Feb. 24:
For National Tortilla Chip Day, we suggest hunting down some chocolate tortilla chips at Falletti Foods (308 Broderick at Fell).

Thurs., Feb. 25:
Unlike Tuesday's holidays, National Clam Chowder Day and National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day would be difficult to celebrate together. We suggest catching Sam's Chowder Mobile for the former, and scoring some triple chocolate almonds at Charles Chocolates (San Francisco Centre) for the latter.

Fri., Feb. 26:
National Pistachio Day and National Chili Day will be part of next week's TGIF celebrating, and festive folk can mark the occasion with a shard of buzzing hot dark chocolate pistachio chili bark from Chocolate Covered (4069 24th St. at Noe).

  • 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.'"
