Dear Tartine: I Take Back What I Wrote About Your Sesame Bread

Redemption tastes sweet. And a little nutty.
  • Redemption tastes sweet. And a little nutty.

The day this post went up last month, chronicling my futile attempts to get a loaf of Tartine's sesame bread, a friend texted me something along the lines of "Idiot, just call a day ahead." (The actual wording was more polite than that, but the meaning was clear.)

"You'd think they would have spelled that out to me the first or second time I tried to buy it," I texted back. The insult to his beloved bakery stuck in his craw, though, and last night he brought me a still-warm loaf of the bread. A bit of intel came with it: Tartine now makes the sesame bread every day they bake bread (Wed.-Sun.) instead of every other day. And you can buy it by the half-loaf. (Full loaves cost $7.) You still have to place your order a day or two ahead, but now I am fully informed.

Today: redemption toast for breakfast. I'll forgive you, Tartine, if you forgive me.

  • 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.'"
