Highlights from the blog this week:

1. W. Blake Gray goes and names San Francisco's five best ice cream shops: No-brainers like Humphry Slocombe make the grade, but so do a few curveballs.

2. Carina Ost hits the new Little Griddle (not to be confused with Little Skillet) in the Civic Center area and orders the Lucifer: one hamburger patty, one slice of cheese, and a doughnut for a bun. Stunt food!

3. I finally wrap up my series investigating what it takes to start up a food related microbusiness in San Francisco. Selling at the Underground Market (R.I.P.): $50. Selling at a real farmers' market: $2,205.

4. Jesse Hirsch checks out the new Siren SeaCSA, a seafood CSA in beta testing. The cost: a little high. The benefits: fresh, local seafood, as well as practice in bearding mussels.

5. W. Blake Gray, dumpling connoisseur, discovers what he declares to be the best dim sum dessert of all time. Ice cream buns? Mango pudding? No: Lee Hou's durian pastry.

  • 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.'"
