You could say Crème Brulee Man Curtis Kimball was a founder father of the new-school street-food scene in this town. And while he quickly garnered attention from as far away as the New York Times, his rig didn't change much. And while new generations of vendors launched fully permitted, Kimball, for all his popularity, stayed informal. All that's about to change.

On Thursday, Kimball's rolling out a sharp new version of the Crème Brulee Cart with a prominent hand-washing sink. "Thursday evening launching the brand new permitted creme brûlée cart! Market and Sutter 4-7pm!" Kimball tweeted a few hours ago to his 14,000-plus followers, before leaking news that the first 250 brulee lovers will get a free mini treat.

  • 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.'"
