Free. Pie. Tomorrow.

Free Pie Lesson from Alan Carter

Where: Macy's Union Square, 170 O'Farrell (at Stockton), 397-3333

When: Sat., Apr. 2, 2 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Nothing like 80-degree days to make you want to crank up the oven and bake. No worries, this weather won't last, and the lessons you gain tomorrow have no expiration date. At a free Macy's event, Alan Carter, pastry chef at Mission Beach Café, will reveal his techniques for rolling out a pie crust, prior to unmasking his "favorite pastry recipe" (we're hoping pot pie counts as a pastry.) Carter will also give samples of seasonal spring pies; we imagine he'll toss chunks from a bucket like a seal trainer.

  • 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.'"
