  • Elderberry shortbread by Batter Bakery.

Batter Bakery has a huge crush on shortbread and has traditionally offered eight unusual flavors, including honey vanilla, lavender sea salt, rosemary brown butter, and sesame ginger. The newest variety of shortbread contains an ingredient rarely seen around these parts: Elderberry.

The tiny berry imparts a slightly tart flavor and a little bit of pleasant seediness to the buttery texture of the cookie. The danger factor of consuming more than one in a sitting is high since the cookies don't have a cloying sweetness.

Shortbread comes in bags of five for $5.75. Batter Bakery also offers hand-decorated shortbread cutouts with Royal icing on advance order. Find 'em at Batter Bakery's shared restaurant with Square Meals on Polk Street or in its dedicated kiosk in front of the Bank of America headquarters at 555 California St.

  • 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.'"
