Chronicle Books' annual warehouse sale starts tomorrow. From Thursday through Saturday, the San Francisco publishing house will be selling hundreds of titles from its back catalog ― for 65 percent off. (Note: The sale only takes place at the store located in Chronicle's SOMA headquarters.)

Because SFoodie only lines up early for estate sales if we've seen something we liked in the Craigslist preview pics, we called Chronicle to find out which cookbooks will be on sale. The woman we spoke to looked over her inventory and gave us a partial list:

$16.95 - 65% = $5.93!
  • $16.95 - 65% = $5.93!

If we were particularly OCD bargain-hunters (we admit nothing), we'd

cross-check the titles on the publisher's

Web site to gather more advance intel. Basically, our informant concluded, the titles on sale are ones that came out a year or more ago. Nothing from the past few season's releases will receive the discount.

Chronicle Books Headquarters Store 680 Second St. (at Townsend),


Hours: 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Thur.-Fri., 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sat.

  • 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.'"
