Where: North Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley

When: Saturday, June 4, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: For one glorious day, the streets of Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto will transform from a posh shopping mall for rich hippies to a posh shopping mall for rich hippies and their children! The Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival is exactly what it sounds like -- you (and your precious littles) will binge on chocolate and when you're all properly cracked-out, you'll create manic sidewalk art with the provided chalk. Sounds pretty alright!

Check out the list of chocolate fantasies you can indulge in: organic raw dark chocolate mousse, chocolate ganache cupcakes, Nutella crepes, adult brownies (not that kind of adult brownie), savory chocolate ricotta pizza, Caribbean chocolate soup, and chocolate foot massages. God love 'em. So on Saturday, June 4, don't let soaring childhood obesity rates get your down -- grab your lil' Augustus Gloop's and let's EAT!

  • 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.'"
