Hapa Ramen at Bar Tartine

Where: Bar Tartine, 561 Valencia (at 16th St.)

When: Mon., Apr. 11

The rundown: Roaming(-ish) noodle vendor Hapa Ramen returns to Bar Tartine for another pop-up round. Chef Richie Nakano says he'll offer his signature ramen lineup, as well as standout pork dishes sparked by Hapa's ongoing Be Evil contest. Be Evil? Nakano's been asking fans to submit nominations for dishes that represent the "most diabolical" thing to do with a pig (ideas pitched so far: pork shoulder slow-roasted and wrapped in crispy chicken skin, pork loin larded with lardo and guanciale, ham and pig's ear terrine...).

Menu highlights: chicken confit cassoulet, sunchokes and artichokes with preserved Meyer lemon and lardo, double-cut pork chop for two, sesame caramel and coffee semifreddi, date cake with cocoa-nib custard

  • 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.'"
