What: Liège Waffle Party!

Where: Duboce Park Cafe

When: Fri., December 16, 2-6 p.m.

Cost: $5.50

The rundown: Liège waffles, named after the place of origination, a town in Eastern Belgium, are a richer, denser, and sweeter than the average waffle. Invented by the chef of an 18th century prince-bishop of Liège, they are supposed to taste as if brioche bread dough were coated with chunks of pearl sugar, and then baked in a waffle iron. It is the most common type of waffle available in Belgium, and the one you'll get from most street vendors.

Here in San Francisco, the wholesale bakery Suite Foods specializes in them, making their products from scratch daily. They're normally served up at Duboce Park Cafe, but the actual team from Suite Foods will be on hand this Friday, to freshly prepare them to order with a myriad of authentic toppings. The waffles will be $5.50, topped with fresh whipped cream, fresh fruit, and shaved, dark, and real Belgian chocolate. Ooh la la!

  • 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.'"
