Foodia Is Olive Oil

Where: Press Club Wine Bar and Lounge, 20 Yerba Buena (at Market), 744-5000

When: Today, 5-8 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Foodia is not about to let you forget it. In case the recent Foodia Is Chocolate tasting event has already faded from memory like it's the day after Easter, the new media start-up is back, and this time olive oil is the hook. Positioning itself as "Yelp for the kitchen," Foodia encourages users to rate kitchen ingredients like tea, pesto, and chocolate. Tonight's event rounds up six small-batch California olive oils, throws them in a room with a bunch of local bread (Josey Baker, Sour Flour, etc.), and lets you go on a full-fledged dipping spree. There will even be some olive oil sorbet from Scream Sorbet for dessert. All that's asked is your feedback!

  • 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.'"
