The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Dear diary: Grub Street asked our own Jonathan Kauffman to document a typical week's worth of food-critic consumption, and Kauffman obliged with a snapshot of five days in February. Dude, how are you not the spitting image of Augustus Gloop in vintage flannel and indigo-wash jeans?

Uptown, girl: Grub Street also notes the launch of Bar Dogwood at 1644 Telegraph (at 17th St.), in Oakland's Uptown neighborhood. The pitch: cocktails, cheese plates, meats cured in-house, a Monday industry night, and what Dogwood's Facebook page calls "really small small-plates."

Pigs working overtime: The Feast reports that America is poised to get stinky with truffles, after wholesale importer Sabatino North America launches a chain of bicoastal retail funghi shops. The first Sabatino & Co Roma is opening in Boston next week; San Francisco should have one of its own by the end of the year. The way we see it, you've got seven, maybe eight months to prepare.

  • 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.'"
