  • Deep-fried Oreos at Batter Up.

A confession: Cook E. Monster does not like Oreos. The chocolate cookies do not taste like chocolate and the white filling in between the not-chocolate cookies does not taste like something that should be edible.

But we had heard that they could fry almost anything at Batter Up and we wondered if that also meant cookies. And you know what? Turns out, if you batter some Oreos and give them a hot oil bath, it's a whole different ballgame.

Once it's hit that oil, that inedible filling melts down into something tolerable, enjoyable even, and that not-chocolate-y cookie gets a little bit cake-like.

Big upgrade. Huge. Sure, it might hasten your death, but it'll be delicious.

  • 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.'"
