"The rain is here and so are the mushrooms," proclaimed Iso Rabins, head of ForageSF, on Twitter, and so they are. Take yourself to Sonoma this weekend to go on a three-hour mushroom foraging expedition with mushroom foraging expert Patrick Hamilton. 

A reasonably affordable $90 gets you an afternoon tramping around the Sonoma Coast learning to find, identify, and cook commonly found mushrooms "and other tasty forage-worthy treats." Sounds like a fun Saturday to us. Buy tickets in advance and meet at the Jenner Sea Store parking lot, and if you can't make the one this weekend, there are plenty more happening over the fall.

Just be cognizant of this disclaimer from the ForageSF team:

"As with all foraging, there is never any guarantee of finding mushrooms. What we do guarantee is that you’ll spend time with one of the most knowledgable foragers in the state, and learn the ins and outs of foraging in the woods, and leave with more than enough knowledge to jumpstart a lifetime of foraging."

  • 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.'"
