Hilary Jacobs has long been acing the art of sandwich-making as the proprietor of the Hil's Cooking gourmet sandwich booth you might have been lucky enough to visit on an Oakland First Friday. Now, she's taking her catering business on the road.

A recently purchased Airstream trailer is soon to be the home of the Bay Area's newest food truck. The mobile menu will feature specialty sandwiches with a focus on comfort food and unique flavor combinations.

The Airstream has been gutted and plans for the kitchen layout and remodel are in the works. She should be up and running in early 2011. In the meantime, you can try her innovative sandwiches at First Fridays in Oakland, across from Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe on Telegraph.

  • 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.'"
