Hello SFoodie Readers!

I'm positively enraptured to announce that effective as of this post, I'll be SF Weekly's new Arts Editor (and food critic). If you read this blog often enough, you might recognize my name (as I've been a regular contributor for two-and-a-half years). I've also freelanced for a bunch of places around the Bay Area and elsewhere, chiefly the Bold Italic.

To put it mildly, I'm incredibly excited about this opportunity and I've got lots of ideas for this blog. By way of background, I've lived in San Francisco for seven years, I've been an ice cream maker at Humphry Slocombe, and I used to be a bartender for Bi-Rite Market's catering department for over five years (along with a two-season stint behind the bar at the American Conservatory Theater). Once upon a time, I was a barista at a genuinely sad and now-defunct cafe in the Mission, the name of which no mere mortal will every pry from me. I also pickle.

I'm an omnivore and a gourmand, I tend to gravitate to the most avant-garde thing on any given menu, and I love schlepping to out-of-the-way places. Full disclosure: I'm not the biggest fan of cantaloupe, bananas, or Hefeweizen, but it's mayonnaise (along with all its derivatives) that really grosses me out. With all apologies to partisans of the ovo-oleaginous condiment, I just want to be candid about my lone visceral loathing as I set about this endeavor.

So please bear with me as I get acclimated to working in a proper office for the first time since 2008, but I look forward to eating obscene quantities across the most food-obsessed city in the country and, with a team of awesome writers, telling you all about it.

All the best, and to hell with the Body Mass Index,

  • 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.'"
