All Bacon Dinner No. 5

When: Sept. 17

Where: Same as it ever was

Cost: $55-$75

Six courses of bacon: does this sound like hog heaven?

If so, you'll want to reserve for Dontaye Ball's fifth edition of his All-Bacon Dinner, which will be held at the same secret San Francisco location (revealed upon reservation) as previous iterations of the meaty pop-up.

Ball has meat cred with us; Good Foods Catering won "Best Roaming Barbecue" in SF Weekly's 2010 Best-Of issue.

Diners can expect an informal yet convivial atmosphere, with communal tables of fellow porcine adventurers and Ball making you feel right at home. His bacon-laden menus are far from just sizzling strips. He showcases the ingredient with different preparations, techniques, and even amounts, so you end up full but don't feel like a pig. He even offers the whole menu to go for five bucks less ($60 to sit down, $75 with wine pairings, $55 to go).

This time around, Ball offers a six-course menu of bacon popcorn, gazpacho with bacon and corn salsa, a deconstructed BLAT featuring housemade pork belly, stone fruit salad with bacon vinaigrette, roasted salmon with corn and squash, and a dessert-tasting. The wine pairing features selections from Portugal, Spain, and California.

Tickets for the Sept. 17 event may be purchased via Eventbrite.

  • 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.'"
