Good Foods Catering's Dontaye Ball, a presence at farmers' markets and events in San Francisco and Marin County, will head to Oakland next week for a special pop-up dinner at Berlyn's, an eatery soon to open on International Boulevard. Proceeds from the five-course meal will help defray opening costs for Berlyn's, an upscale deli that will offer hot and cold sandwiches, salads, burgers, and Bay Area-style soul food with an emphasis on healthy.

Ball's menu:

• Salad of field greens with pickled peaches, spiced walnuts, goat cheese, and shaved onions

• Bacon corn chowder

• "Crazy" Melon: Heirloom melon with extra-virgin olive oil, sherry vinegar, chile flakes, mint, and crisp prosciutto

• Slow-roasted chicken with Good Foods' house-cured bacon, white and yellow corn, sweet torpedo onions, heirloom tomatoes, basil, and seared okra

• Mrs. Berlyn's Strawberry Nopalina: Pound cake with Grand Marnier-flavored whipped cream and strawberries

Good Foods Underground Dinner

When: Tues., July 27; seatings at 6 and 8 p.m.

Where: Berlyn's 123 International (at First Ave.), Oakland

  • 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.'"
