With this opening will come the self-proclaimed world's largest gummy bear ($45), which weighs five pounds, is the size of 1,000 regular gummy bears, and, according to, will cost you more than 12,000 calories. This will be the first Northern California location for the chain, which has a presence in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, and London.

  • 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.'"
