Saturday's Javawalk Cruises Iconic Coffee Spots in North Beach

Posted By on Wed, Apr 14, 2010 at 11:24 AM

Following last night's discussion of the influence of coffee, seafood, produce, and place on our culinary lineage, San Francisco Museum and Historical Society takes to the streets of North Beach this weekend for a Javawalk, where the conversation about coffee will be extended and actually put into practice.

Classic old-timers like Caffe Trieste, Tosca Café, Caffe Roma, and Caffe Greco are on the itinerary of this (hopefully sunny) stroll, which aims to illuminate the historical influence and impact of these and other North Beach coffee landmarks. Just remember to pace yourself, cup-wise.

  • 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.'"
