Down and Dirty Dinner

Where: eVe, 1960 University (at Bonita), Berkeley, 510-868-0735

When: Sun., Mar. 20, 6 p.m.

Cost: $40 ($10 goes to Kenney Cottage Garden)

The rundown: Picture the farmer, gazing out on acres of ripe vegetables as a handful of moist, nutrient-rich dirt sifts through her fingers. Pretty image, no? We think that's what the creators of Berkeley's Dirt Dinner Series were picturing when they came up with the name ― anyway, that's a nicer image than a plateful of potting soil. This Sunday marks eVe's second Dirt Dinner, a six-part series that sources each meal from a different community garden. The dinners are simple, natural affairs, served communally to ensure you make new friends. This month's menu highlighting Kenney Cottage Garden includes garden salad; broccoli soup; braised pork shoulder; peas with leek and onions; glazed beets with pecans and orange; and citrus, honey, and ricotta pie. Gardeners from Kenney Cottage will be on hand to discuss their produce, their mission, and (we're guessing) their dirt. Ten dollars from your dinner goes directly back to the garden.

To reserve a spot, call 510-868-0735.

  • 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.'"
