  • Marlowe's burger seems to have helped make it a late addition to the 2010 Top 100. Or the first addition to 2011.
Believe us, we know all about the urge to engineer a do-over for something that, weeks after publishing, we've reconsidered. When it comes to last month's Chronicle Top 100, it looks as if restaurant critic Michael Bauer has pulled off a back-door revision ― by addition. Today we noticed an update to the Chron list:
While the next Top 100 won't be published until next April, I want to keep you updated on new, interesting places that will likely make next year's list. These have been recently reviewed. Click on the name to find the review: Marlowe, S.F.

Say what? While it seems that Marlowe is the list's de facto post-facto101st entry, Mr. Bauer's note suggests the restaurant is actually the first new addition to next year's list. Although, either to keep some small remnant of suspense, or as a kind of warning to Marlowe that, tasty burger or not, they haven't exactly been canonized. Not yet.

That leaves us with a question. If, say, Commis put a burger on the menu, could it, too, sneak onto 2011's pre-list?

  • 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.'"
