Maverick Chef's Baseball-Themed Hot Sauce Scores Home Run

  • Youk's Hot Sauce
We discovered Youk's Hot Sauce as an added option to our treasured Mariquita Mystery Box last week. Turns out it's a collaboration between the farm of the local culinary stars (from Alice to Zuni), Maverick chef Scott Youkilis, and his baseball star of a bro, Boston Red Sox baseman Kevin Youkilis.

The triple red chili threat of organic jalapeño, serrano, and cayenne peppers isn't thermonuclear, but enough of it will still please a spicehead. We haven't yet found something that it doesn't compliment, with so much more body and depth of flavor than the mass-marketed stuff we normally keep in the refrigerator door.

Find it online, at Maverick (3316 17th St. at Mission), and at Prather Ranch (Ferry Plaza at Embarcadero) for a suggested retail price of $7.

  • 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.'"
