Spoonfed Design 

Wednesday, Oct 24 2012
Anyone who has ever begrudgingly wedged themselves into the crowd at a communal table has no doubt cursed manage-ment and architect alike, but is it possible that eateries have loftier goals than maximizing head count? Join California Home+Design’s Erin Feher for Design and Eating as she grills three local architects on sustainability, culture, and commu-nity in Bay Area restaurant design. The glossy’s executive editor is joined by David Darling, the mastermind behind local favorites Bar Agricole and Wexlers, as well as Douglas Burnham and Robert Polacek. We have Burnham to thank for Delfina’s pizzerias and Domaine Chandon in Napa, but he spends much of his time at the California College of the Arts as an adjunct professor who lectures on craft and the urban condition. Polacek often waxes rhapsodic about design as a way to enable communities to gather and generate change in society, and names Dolores Park as a place to find him on most weekends. The panel marks the New York-based Culintro’s first foray in San Francisco, and the national restaurant organization prom-ises to be more than just big ideas: An open bar and light snacks follow the discussion, where speakers mingle with design enthusiasts and foodies.

  • 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.'"
