It's not surprising how many customers at Zog's Dogs, which just named itself the greatest fucking

hot dog stand ever, order their hot dogs deep-fried. Giving people the "option" of having their food deep-fried is like giving them the "option" of taking a $20 bill. It takes more work to say no than to heed the call of the id.

You'll have better-tasting results by substituting another food the id can't resist: bacon. Start with Zog's Mexico frank ($5.50), rolled up in bacon and grilled until the pork shrinks into a crisp spiral. The Mexico already comes with caramelized onions and mild jalapeños; have the cooks thatch the top with kraut, too. Squeeze a fat rail of spicy brown German mustard over top. We're not ready to call it the greatest fucking hot dog ever, but you may.

  • 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.'"
