  • The legislation ― which eases the permitting process for vendors like Curbside Coffee ― now goes before the full Board of Supervisors.

At a public hearing earlier today, San Francisco's City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee approved a new ordinance for street-food vendors on streets and sidewalks, moving the city closer to streamlining its process for licensing mobile food sellers. The Committee made only minor changes to legislation sponsored by Supervisor Bevan Dufty, including reducing pushcart vendors sidewalk clearance from 10 feet to 8.

The Committee also approved the new rules voted Friday by the Planning Commission regulating vendors on private property, including city parks. The Board of Supervisors will take up the new legislation as soon as Nov. 23.

  • 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.'"
