The task force looking into Emeryville's mobile vending ordinance will meet next week, says Police Chief Ken James, the advisory body's secretary, tells SFoodie. The 13-member task force convenes next Tuesday, Oct. 12, at 5:30 p.m. in city offices at 1333 Park (at Hollis), to discuss changes to the East Bay city's 22-year-old mobile vending ordinance. The task force meeting is open to the public.

Two weeks ago, the City Council ― responding to complaints by restaurant owners and the Emeryville Chamber of Commercenamed a body culled from both brick and mortars and food trucks. Task force members include two City Council members (Ken Bukowski and Nora Davis), four mobile vendors (Walker Bass of Primo's Parrilla, Jon Kosorek of Jon's Street Eats, Gail Lillian of Liba Falafel, and Shari Washburn of Ebbet's Good To Go) and five restaurant owners: Anil Bhagat, vice manager of the Bay Street Shopping Center; Patrick Feehan of Café Aquarius; Doyle Street Café's George Masarweh; Albert Repola of Ruby's Café; and Jonas Bernstein of Rotten City Pizza.

  • 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.'"
