Union Square Foot + Art
returns this Thursday, June 4 with tons of great reasons to congregate around what it essentially a big memorial to America’s conquest of the Philippines. (Just ignore it, and hit up 398 Restaurant, E&O Kitchen and Sugarfina instead).

There will actually be some 40 businesses offering free nibbles plus drinks and other specials, among them. Aveline, Farallon, Burger Bar, Bartlett Hall, and of course, Macy’s. A word to the people who scour the earth in search of where to drink for free: OneUP at the Grand Hyatt, the European, Sonoma County Distilling Company, Nespresso, ENO Wine Bar, and Clock Bar are your best bets. Last year, at least 500 people turned out, so get there early.

In the non-food domain, there will be gift bags from Atelier Emmanuel, live music at Café Claude, exhibits at Winston Gallery and McLoughlin Gallery, and a sculpture event at Urban Hardwoods. It’s free to attend, but you must RSVP by 7:30 p.m. Wednesday to get your wristband. It’s about time locals took back their prime public square from people who apparently can’t use Google asking you where the Cheesecake Factory is.

Union Square Food + Art, Thursday, June 5, 5-8 p.m., check-in at Emporio Rulli on Union Square Park, 333 Stockton St.

  • 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.'"
