  • Bike Basket Pies makes a quick comeback this weekend.

Bike Basket Pies Pop-Up Pie Party

Where: The Unresolved Love Life of Evelyn Lee, 491 Potrero (at Mariposa), 625-3362

When: Sun., Dec. 30, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Cost: $4 per pie

The rundown: Devouring the handheld sweet and savory offerings from Bike Basket Pies was a really cool part of the 2009 wave of street food vendors that made the Mission a tastier place to be. Founder Natalie Galatzer baked and biked the pies to your door, but decided to end the project in 2011 after publishing a booklet of her secrets. She now teaches the occasional pie-making workshop at kitchenware shop Pot + Pantry but no longer sells pies on the regular, which makes this one-night break from retirement a very special opportunity for deliciousness.

Galatzer will hit the most randomly named bar in San Francisco with pear ginger, shaker lemon, and potato, leek, and cheddar pies. Buy some extra and freeze them, and please do your best to sweet talk her into future pop-up pie parties.

  • 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.'"
