A new Hong Kong-based company called Amazing Delights hopes to market its fig-based confections to the health-conscious. When its Divine line ("trust in every bit [sic]") hit local shelves later this year (probably), they might well be the most well-traveled figs around. The company sources figs and nuts from Napa County, exports them to Hong Kong, and will soon send them back to California in snack form. Low in fat and with no added sweeteners except honey, these are pretty healthy, and taste good. Maybe not the most innovative thing you can do with Northern California produce, but it is kinda fascinating to have a taste of something with so many return frequent flyer miles.

  • 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.'"
