Rock Candy Snack Shop opened on Bernal Heights' main drag on September 1st, just in time for us all to get busy on it for Halloween. Happy Halloween, indeed!

Proprietress Heather Young says she wanted to create a candy shop for all the folks that candy forgot. The sad vegans, the sad kids with allergies, and the sad gluten-free yoga moms. Recently, a little boy came in, and said he'd never been in a candy store. He cried when he saw all the treats he could consume. I mean, can you even IMAGINE? Have you seen the video of the little kids who literally start hyperventilating when they have to wait a minute to eat a marshmallow? Kids NEED candy to survive! An aside, I just showed this video to my 5-year-old niece Jocelyn, and she said, "I can't take it! It's torture what they're doing!" so anyway, the point is, kids love candy, and here's a place for all kids to overdose, and in style!

Rock Candy Snack Shop stocks amazing brittles, chocolates, gummies, hard candies, soft candies, and everything delicious. Plus, tons of Halloween goodies, for everyone! As Heather says, "naughty but nice, guilt free treats." Plus, they have cupcakes for dogs. CUPCAKES FOR DOGS. This store has it all! And did I mention the cashew flax brittle? Because it's freaking insane, and I insist that you eat it as soon as possible. Now, I wonder how that almond sunflower brittle is? No day like today to find out!

  • 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.'"
