  • Halloween brownie bites from Baked, three for $7.50.

Highlights from the blog this week:

1. SFoodie contributor Albert Law, who has been spending six weeks in China, stumbled upon a cafe in Beijing that serves Ritual coffee. And it's no cheap knockoff -- it's the real stuff, imported from San Francisco. In fact, the brought over Eilenn Hassi to train his staff, and he's now giving workshops on how to make a cup of coffee.

2. In case you were hurting for Halloween costume suggestions: Bacon drag!

3. Noah Sanders interviews Ben Kaminsky from Ritual Roasters, who reveals his hopes for the future of coffee culture: No. More. Lattes. SFoodie supposes he's probably down on pumpkin spice macchiatos, too.

4. Ben Narasin clued SFoodie in on the best way to try great wines on the cheap: pre-auction wine tastings. You simply pretend you're considering buying a case of 1992 Bordeaux, and they let you try the freakin' wine. Amazing.

5. Don't let them drag you to Pier 39 again: Six suggestions for places to take your out-of-town visitors to eat.

  • 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.'"
