What: Christopher Kimball at Omnivore Books

Where: Omnivore Books

When: Sat., October 22, 3-4 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Meet the accomplished mad man behind Cook's Illustrated magazine and PBS's America's Test Kitchen, Christopher Kimball, as he discusses the new The Cook's Illustrated Cookbook. It's filled with 2,000 recipes, all hell bent on actually working. As many of us know, this is not the case with all recipes, so it's a novel concept. Kimball is a fascinating character too, what with having started a magazine when he was just 29 years old. I didn't own a bed when I was 29 years old. Hats off!

  • 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.'"
