That Story Was Delicious 

Wednesday, Apr 8 2009
Dining out, we put our faith in the chef. In return, some chefs put their faith in Jack Daniel’s, the Five-Second Rule, MSG, or the persuasiveness of the “Employees must wash hands” sign in the bathroom. Bad things can happen in the kitchen. We like to know about them — hence the early career of Anthony Bourdain. Porchlight’s Kitchen Confidential is a chance to know a little more. Arline Klatte and Beth Lisick’s storytelling series invites a historian/waiter (Ron Henggeler), a playwright/bartender (Diane Karagienakos), and an animator/former restaurant owner (Scott Kravitz), to ladle up tales of restaurant weirdness. Great — people with aspirations beyond getting us our steak and another beer. What about the lifers? Well, how about NOPA line cook Richie Nakano and Delfina owner and chef Craig Stoll? Now we’re cooking with explosives.

  • 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.'"
