Feast of Words

Where: SOMArts, 934 Brannan (at Eighth St.), 863-1414

When: Tonight., Mar. 1, 7-9 p.m.

Cost: $10; $5 with a potluck dish

The rundown: Every meal has a story. A kazillion food bloggers stand ready to tell you about their gramma's spiritual potato salad or their oh-em-gee experience eating tongue tacos, but SOMArts does it one better. At the monthly event Feast of Words, co-hosts Irina Zadov and Lex Leifheit explore that murky intersection between food and the words we use to talk about it. Tonight's offering is particularly ephemeral, following the theme "Unsaid: Stories Between Bites." Unsure about what that means? Try 500-year-old recipes from "the Spanish Crypto-Jews," prepared by Yasmin Golan of Calico Pies, paired with some transcendent poetry readings by Bill Berkson and Micah Ballard. This is also a potluck, and past Feast of Words have brought together a great cross-section of accomplished home cooks. Top it all off with flash writing games (think icebreakers for the literati) for edible prizes and you've got an evening that will be nothing if not unique.

Buy advance tickets before 6 p.m at Eventbrite and save yourself two bucks

  • 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.'"
