  • Fifteen pounds of this could be yours to help build your ultimate bacon dream.

New Yorker Matt Timms is ready to give you 15 pounds of Hormel Black Label bacon to fashion into a culinary delight for his Bacon Takedown competition on Sunday, July 10, at Thirsty Bear. Keep in mind, though, that you'll have to compete against chefs like Best Of winner Dontaye Ball of Good Foods Catering, who took home the championship belt at Timms' Lamb Takedown last summer. You'll also need to impress the heck out of judges including this SFoodie writer, so get to brainstorming!

If you prefer to leave the cooking to others and simply want to eat ungodly amounts of bacon, mark the date on the calendar. Bacon Takedown will bring as much bacon as you could possibly eat in one day for an admission price of $15.

  • 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.'"
