If you're having lunch at Off The Grid's Civic Center event today (11 a.m.-2 p.m.), save some room for dessert. It'll be your second chance to get a cannolo from new street vendor Roamin' Cannoli before she changes locations because of the regular rotation of vendors. Owner Olivia Pilz took advantage of OTG organizer Matt Cohen's rent-a-truck for aspiring street food entrepreneurs to launch her new business.

If you've heard that last name before, it's because she's the wife of William Pilz, the talented chef and proprietor of Filipino food truck Hapa SF. Olivia makes nontraditional versions of cannoli ($4 each), with unique fillings like her signature goat cheese and mascarpone; lemon meringue; white chocolate cream with raspberries; blueberry cheesecake; and dark chocolate espresso. The ends are topped with chopped Tcho dark chocolate, fresh fruit, or graham cracker crumbs. Each is filled to order so the shells remain fresh and crispy. Husband and wife rent space at La Victoria Bakery as their base of operations. We love small family-run businesses. Check Facebook for location updates.

  • 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.'"
