August might be a slow time for a lot of things, but from the J-POP Summit to the SF Street Festival to Eat Drink SF, you can gorge yourself every weekend all month. (Compare that to, say, the mass closure of everything tasty in Paris during the month of août.)

That still leaves one empty weekend, though, so if you like to eat burger and haven’t yet made plans for Sunday, Aug. 30, consider Burger Battle: Gourmet Burgers & Craft Beers at The Hall on Market St.

The first round of a three-round burger war among the Whole Beast, Wesburger, and Burger, it’s one of those events where the audience and not a panel of burger experts on a dais determines the winner. Tickets are $45, for which you get tastes of three burgers plus two beers, and 15 percent of the door goes to Bay Leaf Kitchen to support local farmers.

It may not be Eurasia versus Eastasia versus Oceania, but winning Best Burger in a town that Bon Appetit just crowned the greatest foodie city in the U.S.? Damn, the competition for this one will be tight.

Burger Battle: Gourmet Burgers & Craft Beers
, Sunday, Aug. 30, 4 p.m., at the Hall, 1028 Market.

  • 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.'"
