Dolores Park Cafe's Latte Art Throwdown

Where: Dolores Park Cafe, 501 Dolores (at 18th St.)

When: Thu., July 7, 7-10 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Be it free-flowing forms of espresso and foam, or detailed depictions of animals, scenery, and faces, all latte drinkers have (at least once) been captivated by the frothy artworks atop their coffee cups.

Usually, caffeine addicts are the only ones who see the minimasterpieces before they disappear into the swirl of swivel sticks and sugar. But on Thursday, San Francisco baristas will congregate at Dolores Park Cafe for a latte art contest, where they'll create their best foam designs for the masses.

To the backdrop of jazz band Stupid Man Suit, baristas will froth to win prizes for the temporary, edible artworks. For spectators, there will be beer ($3), wine ($5), and the cafe menu to nosh while watching the artists create.

  • 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.'"
