    Roll Your Own

    Some of us hate sports; it's part of why we like art. We became artsy types so we could get out of P.E. in 11th grade! But at Open for Making: A Residency for Creativity, those sorts of BS dichotomies…

    Spokesmuffin

    Since cupcakes have become the icon of celebration here in the U.S. (just ask any third-grader), it makes sense that there would now be a bicycle race that incorporates them, right? The Tour de Cupcake is an alleycat-style race, meaning…

    Best Edible Cosmetics

    Sniffing the gobs of real cocoa powder that spill out of their toffee- and honey-scented massage bars or the kiwi, pineapple, and papaya in their hair treatments, it's easy to mistake either of the two Lush Fresh Cosmetics locations as…

    Best Milkshake Many people love Taylor's burgers, others rave about the fish and chips, and there's a vocal group that cheers loudly for the fish tacos. But we think the best thing on the menu is the milkshake, which is…

    Best Guacamole

    The rich, creamy, slightly musky character of the avocado can be enjoyed in soups, on burgers, and even in ice cream (hello, Mitchell's), but it's most pleasurably experienced when combined with chopped onions and lime juice and scooped up with…

    Best Place to Wear White

  • 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.'"
