All through December, SFoodie is bringing you local gift ideas for the food obsessives in your life.

Whenever someone gifts me a plant, I'm charmed and happy that my friends notice I have learned how to nourish and keep delicate and even beautiful plants alive in my modest Mission dwelling. Whether your giftee has the greenest of thumbs or is more of a "wait and see" shy gardening type, it's off to the solar powered Flora Grubb Gardens you go. The space is in Bayview District and sports easy-peasy parking, Ritual Roasters coffee and Black Jet Bakery pastries to keep your shopping energy from flagging. Flora's boasts a nice sale running now through December 24.

Peek at felty adorable ornaments. Nab some succulents to line their Wooly Pocket planters in fine fashion like the ones at Local Mission Eatery (insider tip: you really do need a drill to install your Wooly Pocket). At Flora Grubb yesterday, Daniel the handsome staffer said the sale is a great time to gift citrus plants, herb plants and seeds for Bay Area apartment dwellers. Way to put some "grow" in their holiday glow!

  • 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.'"
