We love that there's an annual benefit for children that encourages adults to gorge on sweets. While you might ordinarily say that you'll "do this for the kids," at Sugar Rush you actually will, since the tasting event benefits Spark, a Bay Area-based nonprofit that sets up powerful mentors and apprenticeships for students. Quality places, too -- we actually had a shameful moment feeling jealous of the 12-year-old Spark participant who got to work at the Recchiuti chocolate factory last year, for example. Recchiuti will be joined at Sugar Rush by confectionery masters from Chez Panisse, Coi, Fifth Floor, Humphry Slocombe, Boulevard, Delfina, Millennium, and Range.

Although Spark doesn't say this on any of its official materials, it is not responsible for any crazy sugar comas that might ensue.

  • 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.'"
