Top Chefs and Restaurants Come Together for Two Charitable Events

Posted By on Tue, Jan 8, 2013 at 2:00 PM

  • Wine and Wishes

Share Our Strength Dinner

Where: Spruce, 3640 Sacramento (at Spruce), 931-5100

When: Tues., Jan. 22, 6 p.m.

Cost: $250

The rundown: Give us the chance to see celeb chefs (including Food Network alum Amanda Freitag) and taste a sweet chocolate cremeaux from Belinda Leong and we'll find a way to put together $250 for a charity dinner. Then there's the "good cause" feel good effect: Share Our Strength is a fiscally responsible charity that raises funds to end childhood hunger. Tasting food from Craig Stoll, Anthony Strong, Jason Berthold, Mark Sullivan & John Madriaga only sweetens the deal. (This writer is a longtime volunteer and one time project manager for SOS).

When: Sat., Feb. 2, 5 p.m.

  • 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.'"
