Five favorite bits from the blogs and beyond:

1. A couple years ago, a friend and I drove several hundred miles out of our way to stop in Pie Town, New Mexico, for apple and green chile pie. Now all I have to do is walk to Chile Pies. Something about the blog buzz around the new restaurant's Frito pie in the bag suggests a Frito pie street cart will appear in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

2. SFoodie's beer guy, Brian Yeager, discovers 100 beers, many of them not Bud or Miller, priced to sell at the Van Ness hofbrau Tommy's Joynt. Duchesse de Bourgogne for less than $5?

3. Bite o' the week: Asparagus season has finally come 'round, and I

kicked it off by gorging on NOPA's

smoky wood-grilled spears with an anchovy-lemon dressing and creamy curls of Mezzo Secco cheese.

4. Seattleites have been eating the city's best Mexican food in taco

buses for almost a decade. And in 2003, the Chron wrote an article about Joe's Bustaurant, an underground Italian restaurant in the East Bay whose owner dispensed golden keys to his regular customers (hey, long-timers ― anyone know if it's still around?). Now high-end, fully legal bustaurants are revving up in L.A. and S.F.

5. The best part of Lauren Smiley's discovery of the plastic-pizza

spinner in Washington Square Park? He's not doing it for the glory. He's doing it for the love.

  • 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.'"
