The two locations of chef Ryan Scott's eatery Market & Rye are known for having creative desserts such as endless remixes of Twinkies and fully loaded cookies like the Kitchen Sink, which carries an arsenal of pretzels, potato chips, butterscotch chips, and chocolate chips. A new cookie variety is a tribute to the infamous tastes of the late Elvis Presley.

The King Cookie is, at its heart, a really good peanut butter cookie, with crispy edges and a soft middle. But because Elvis has come to symbolize overindulgence with food, it's also got chewy shards of bacon mixed in and a crunchy mixture of chopped peanuts, banana chips, and sea salt flakes on top. It is a smart appropriation of the indulgent sandwich that Elvis called his favorite: Peanut butter, banana, and bacon.

  • 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.'"
