Today's scorching heat forced us to search for something refreshing at the UN Plaza Off the Grid to help us cool down. The answer came in the form of a truck serving soft-serve ice cream, root beer floats, and fruit-sicles. SFoodie had previously reported on Meg Hilgartner and Siri Skelton's Twirl & Dip truck's public debut back in June, when they hadn't yet installed their soft-serve machine. Hilgartner and Skelton couldn't have chosen a better day to make a first appearance at OTG.

After briefly perusing the blackboard menu, we chose the soft-serve vanilla-chocolate twirl, served in a handmade cone ($4). We got instant gratification after the first lick, so we continue lapping our treat on our way back to the office.

The crisp, buttery handmade cone was a cut above regular waffle cones. Previously, the truck has been roaming around the South and East Bay while waiting for approval of a location in the Marina area (no news on its status yet). It has departed from the UN Plaza by now, but anyone else in need for some cooling down can find the truck this evening at OTG Upper Haight (Stanyan and Waller streets) from 4 to 9 p.m.

  • 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.'"
