  • The Local Foods Wheel for the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Local Foods Wheel launched in San Francisco in 2006. It's a handy visual and educational devise to stay seasonal with what's fresh within a 150-mile radius of the city. Right now, that means foods such as chicories, sunchokes, venison, kohlrabi, cardoons, persimmons, and (sadly for us, because there's a strike going on) Dungeness crab.

The calendar utilizes old seasonal moon names from old almanacs. December is the snow moon, and January is the long nights moon.

Find it online ($12.95) or in person at Buyer's Best Friend and a number of other Bay Area locations. If you go to the BBF store, though, you can also pick up upper Midwest and New York metro wheels to send as gifts to friends and relatives.

  • 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.'"
