Today in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

You'd probably have to take a day or two off work, glued to your laptop, to keep up with the Japan relief fundraisers ― and that's just the food and drink ones. Fortunately, Tablehopper's been diligent about keeping a list.

It's becoming clear that the birthday celebrations for Chez Panisse's 40th will be sort of sprawling and complicated, not unlike Alice's appearance at Twitter yesterday. Inside Scoop gets a bead on the tribute menus the upstairs cafe has already rolled out, honoring the restuarant's inspirations. This week: Claudia Roden.

And Tablehopper reports on Stinking new owners for the Old Clam House.

  • 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.'"
