  • A farkakta idea? Nobody ever got stung merely talking about beekkeping.
Those hoping to learn more about the honey they're dipping challah and apples into during the Jewish High Holiday season can do so at Saul's Adventures in the Honey Harvest next Tuesday night. Topics for discussion include urban beekeeping, reversing the bee population decline, and the differences between wildflower, clover, and raw honey. Honey and beekeeping experts, including Jen Radtke, a beekeeping instructor, Helene Marshall of Marshall's Farm Natural Honey, and Corey Block, urban farm coordinator for Treasure Island Job Corps, will be on hand to share their tales from the hives and offer tips on how to start your own. There will be a tasting of raw, urban honeys as well. While most Jewish mothers would deem urban beekeeping to be a farkakta idea, simply discussing beekeeping should be safe.

Adventures in the Honey Harvest

When: Tues., Sept. 14, 7-8:30 p.m.

Where: Saul's Restaurant and Delicatessen, 1475 Shattuck (at Vine), 510-848-3354

  • 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.'"
