TED Talk: Changing the Way We Eat

Where: Numi Tea Garden, 2230 Livingston St. (at Cotton), Oakland, 877-686-4832

When: Sat., Feb. 12, 7:30 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: How about a different kind of Saturday morning? Instead of sleeping off your Friday night, popping a couple of ibuprofen, and heading for noon eggs and lattes, you have the option of attending a free early-morning TED event on sustainable eating. Beamed in live from the Prince George Ballroom in New York City (hello, future!), the lineup is a virtual who's-who of the ethical food movement, including Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis (makers of the seminal documentary King Corn), Brian Halweil of the Worldwatch Institute, and Josh Viertel, president of Slow Food USA. Held at the Zen-friendly Numi Tea Garden, this is your chance to network with like-minded eaters and plug into a national webcast on the future of food. The event is broken into three sessions (see schedule below) so feel free to attend all or part of the day's lectures. Breakfast and/or lunch provided for a small donation; chances are it won't be from the nearby McDonald's.

  • 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.'"
