Humphry Slocombe Introduces New Line of Caramel Candies

Humphry Slocombe gets a lot of attention for its ice cream, but there are little toppings and treats (like frosted peanuts and duck fat pecan pie) that comparatively fly as much under the radar as is possible for this popular parlor. One new such addition: a line of in-house caramels (four for $5) inspired by ice cream flavors. The candies are available at the shop, the new HS stand at the Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market on Tuesdays, and in their forthcoming Christmas gift box. The first offering, Salt 'N Peppa (a personal favorite in their ice cream), has Maldon sea salt, mild Cubeb pepper, zingy Szechuan pepper, and pink peppercorns. Brown sugar fennel is possibly the next flavor up to bat, with more planned. Oh, what we wouldn't give for a Secret Breakfast caramel. Humphry Slocombe 2790 Harrison (at 24th Street), 550-6971

  • 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.'"
