Cheese of France Pop-Up Cafe

Where: 111 Minna Gallery, 111 Minna (at Second), 974-1719

When: Sat., Oct. 6, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Cost: Free (RSVP via Eventbrite)

The rundown: Nibble on French cheese dishes made by Commonwealth chef Jason Fox, sip French wine for free, and get drunk before noon if you choose -- as far as promotional events go, this one hosted by the French national cheese board sounds pretty cool.

Indigenous Edibles

Where: The Guest Chef, 5337 College (at Manila), Oakland; (510) 658-7378

When: Oct. 9-21

Cost: A la carte menu items from $8-24

The rundown: Chef John Farais, a cooking instructor in Marin, translates Native Californian and American ideas from his Indigenous Edibles website into a two-week residency at the Guest Chef. Menu highlights include Mayan corn truffle quesadilla, black walnut soup with elk sausage, cedar-wrapped sturgeon, and bison tri-tip encrusted with pepitos and mushrooms.

Truck Stop Cafe

Where: Truck, 1900 Folsom (at 15th St.), 252-0306

When: Wed., Oct. 10, 6-10 p.m.

Cost: A la carte menu items from $4-18

The rundown: Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream owner Jake Godby has settled into a general array of extremely comforting American food options (including duck fat Chex mix, fried chicken sandwiches, bourbon and Coke floats) for his monthly pop-up at the gay bar Truck. This month, he introduces a new concept for a Blue Plate Special: Recreating the last meal of famous Death Row inmates. He hasn't settled on a serial killer for this month, yet, but tells SFoodie that even if one of his selected victims ate a Big Mac for their last meal, he'll create his own version of it.

  • 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.'"
