CNN's Eatocracy concluded Nicole Dow's two-part Q and A with Anthony Bourdain today. Yesterday, the man-craggy TV host described returning to Lebanon (his No Reservations production crew had to scramble out in 2006, when the war between Israel and Hezbollah broke out in mid-taping ― read Bourdain's glancing descriptions of shimmering sfiah and kibbe).

Dow probed the personal Tony today, asking him about eating with family, the one he had ("like 'Mad Men,' that era of the family meal"), and the one he has, three-year-old daughter Ariane who even sits patiently through oysters at French brasseries. Then this:

[Dow]: What is the last meal you had that made you cry? Bourdain: Every time I have that first bowl of pho' in Vietnam, I tear up a little.

  • 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.'"
