An update on Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous, the ice cream and sweets shop nearing completion in Dogpatch. Pastry chef/owner Ian Flores told us he's expecting to open in just about two weeks. The permitting process is done. The only holdup is a custom sneeze guard. "We're getting close," Flores said. "We got product, we have electrical, we've been testing." A peek into the papered windows at 699 22nd St. (at Third St.) revealed tables, chairs, and a counter fronting an open kitchen. Flores said he's still mulling over the idea of mounting a soft opening, or maybe a friends and family kickoff.

Pastry chef and baker Annabelle Topacio, Flores' partner in business and, well, every other way, has been testing cookies, shortbread, and what the Brits call flapjacks, the kind that aren't slather targets for butter and syrup. "They're like a granola bar, but not as clunky and bulky," Topacio explained.

Oh, and the shop's unusual name, Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous? "We didn't want a one-word name," Topacio said, laughing. "Ian and I aren't married, and we have a daughter ― it's a whole family event thing for us, it just seemed kind of perfect. Plus what were' doing isn't just ice cream, but pastries, candies. We wanted people to know that." Glad she cleared that up.

  • 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.'"
