The San Francisco Planning Commission yesterday approved unanimously Supervisor Bevan Dufty's legislation for new street-food rules for vendors on private property, with one slight change. The proposed ordinance ― which streamlines the permitting process for would-be truck and pushcart vendors ― originally applied to food trucks of up to 225 square feet. But after the owner of the Le Truc bustaurant voiced an objection, Commissioners upped the maximum size limit to 300 square feet.

On Monday, the City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee holds a public hearing on the part of the legislation covering food vendors on streets and sidewalks. That meeting is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at Room 250 in City Hall. If approved, both proposals will go before the Board of Supervisors.

  • 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.'"
