  • Flora is among dozens of eateries participating in Oakland Restaurant Week, Jan. 23-29.

Now going on in S.F.: Dine About Town, which has been around for nearly 10 years. A newborn by comparison, Oakland Restaurant Week launches for the first time on Jan. 23, and ends Jan. 29. Both promotions offer bargains on lunch and dinner, but Oakland's version is different. Oakland Restaurant Week's Elisa Williams tells SFoodie that meals are $20-$40, depending on what each participating restaurant decides to offer.

"We've let people do what they want," she says. "Plum is doing four courses [for $40], and Chop Bar's doing three courses [for $30] with a magically refilled wine glass." (We'd love to see that magic!) The other deals that look best to us are at Bay Wolf, Bocanova, Camino, Flora, Hibiscus, and Oliveto. Full list of participating restaurants and deals at the Oakland Convention and Visitors Bureau website.

  • 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.'"
