Rosé Fest, Rogue Market: Piccino Doubles Down on Delicious

Pizza's only half the story. - ONIONDEATH/FLICKR
Piccino is known as much for facilitating community-focused events in Dogpatch as it is for turning out thin-crusted pizzas and seasonal salads. On this week in June, two charming happenings stand as evidence. On Sunday, the pizzeria holds its third annual Rosé Fest, pouring an assortment of cool, thirst-slaking rosés, including a Marsannay (Pinot Noir) from Régis Bouvier, a Chinon (Cabernet Franc) from Bernard Baudry, and a Bardolino Chiaretto by Corte Gardoni (a Corvina-Rondinella-Molinara blend from the Veneto). They'll sit alongside the usual menu, and a special trout dish prepared by visiting bros from Sausalito's Fish. A little sooner ― as in tomorrow ― stop by the restaurant for County Line Harvest's "rogue market", and pick up a $25 "mystery" box of produce containing such possibilities as pea shoots, favas, broccoli rabe, radishes, strawberries, puplette onions, frisée, summer savory, and curly parsley. You'll want to get your order in ASAP. Find out how after the jump.

  • 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.'"
