What: Kulinarya: A Filipino Culinary Showdown

Where: Carnelian by the Bay

When: Sat., January 21, 3-8 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Six Filipino-American chefs will compete in a cook-off and you'll be in the audience, tasting their delicious dishes. SFoodie's Jun Belen went last year, and had a hell-of a time. He wrote, "The friendly cookoff proved to be a virtual Filipino fiesta, showcasing the best of the Bay Area's burgeoning Filipino cuisine." Alright!

This year, the competing chefs are Arlene Nuñez, Jerrick Figueroa, Gloria Ramos, Albert Rivera, Kristela Mendoza, and Tim Luym. The chefs are divided into amateur and professional divisions, so that seasoned pros don't completely dominate the newbies. However, culinary delights come from both camps, so don't count out the young ones. The event starts at 3 p.m., with the Amateur Division Cook-off at 4 p.m., professional at 6 p.m., and the Awards Ceremony at 7:45 p.m.

It's free, but seating is limited. RSVP to reserve seats. For food tasting showcase, coupons are available at $20 per pack.

  • 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.'"
