We get it: the last two days have been "miserably hot." You want your San Francisco fog back so you can cool off. Plus, you miss your hoodie.

But you know who isn't complaining -- this 33-year-old polar bear named Uulu who spent the last two days in this heat taking leisurely dips in her pool at the San Francisco Zoo. According to zookeepers, the elderly bear is living life like she's still a cub.

  • 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.'"
