Birthday Tribute Dinner to Marion Cunningham

Where: Foreign Cinema, 2534 Mission (at 21st St.), 648-7600

When: Thu., Feb. 10

Cost: TBD

The rundown: Foreign Cinema's annual birthday tribute to Marion Cunningham, featuring dishes inspired by the noted East Bay cook and author. The menu's still being finalized, but Foreign Cinema's Gayle Pirie tells SFoodie the dinner may feature raised waffles. Pirie says Cunningham was a Foreign Cinema regular throughout the restaurant's first six years, recalling how she'd pull up in her Jag, sometimes with Williams-Sonoma founder Chuck Williams. Cunningham, whose health is poor, isn't expected to attend.

Reservations: Call 648-7600, or go to OpenTable

  • 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.'"
